Ice - Original Watercolour (31"x28")
This my first painting of a white tiger. I was really drawn to the intensity of the tiger’s gaze - particularly this guys piercing blue / green eyes. The colour combination of the white fur and cool blue eyes reminded me of Ice, so I called this piece Ice. I wanted this portrait to evolve as I painted it, so I painted Ice directly on the paper without any preliminary pencil drawing (I didn’t draw the outline first and then start painting, I just painted). This is my favourite way to work as it allows the painting to evolve and come to life as I apply the pigment. It’s also a really exciting way to work as you never quite know what the finished painting will look like!

It is framed in my signature limed white wooden frame, with an off-white double mount under glass. The piece is 31”x28" in size. The photos attached feature the painting to scale in a living interiors to give you a sense of the dimensions.
