Tíogar Fiáin (Wild Tiger) by cari
A Celtic tiger, now there's something you hardly ever see! This painting was a private commission, and the challenge was to create not only a tiger, Celtic style, but to also incorporate a leafy feel to his background out of knotwork. Celtic cats are usually either domestic household cats, or lions, so it was really interesting figuring out how I was going to create a tiger version, and get his ruff and stripes depicted appropriately. He is in wonderful vibrant colors, and I love the way the green offsets the oranges and reds in him. Prints of this painting are available from the Gift Shop in my personal site!
