At first I didnt like this one, mainly because of the spatter at the bottom... it gives the impression of... something happening down there. :) Still I like it.

Here are two Felins from the Singapore Zoo.

This one was done at home, referring to some of my study and a photo my wife took. I limited myself to Indigo, Payne's Gray, Yellow Chrome and titanium white. If you follow the local news, you've probably heard about the incident. This tiger above killed a man two weeks ago.

This one was done on the spot, with people behind me watching every step of my progress, felt uncomfortable. I dont remember the palette a I used, but guessing from the original it must be raw sienna, ultra marine blue and burnt sienna. The scanner has shifted some of the colors.

Revisiting Magalie

I`ve been revisiting some old work... and I started to like this two pieces. I rejected them at first... but now seeing them few months later give me a fresh perspective. Like if it was the work of someone else, now that the reel scene has vanished in my memory. I see them as what they are now, and not what they could have been. I always find it very hard to judge my own work. Especially while doing it. It usually take at least a day or two to be able to select or reject. Sometime I really feel ashamed.
