Finished Tiger

This has the whiskers finished. Here's today tip on these delicate aspects of an animal. I don't use white. The ones on the left are light blue, and the ones in the shadow right side are light purple.

I put in a dark violet line right under the light whisker to make the line stand out. I use value contrast instead of white because I think white tends to flatten and is less interesting. Especially if you use too much of it There is no white in this painting.

I am pleased with this and am so glad I was asked to do it. I've wanted to do this tiger for some time but was stuck. Now I'm ready to paint more.
