Artwork Description

This painting was heavily inspired by my recent Pre-Raphaelite delvings. It was sparked by an Indian version of the Bluebeard story, where a young woman marries a tiger. Personally I always thought the tiger got a bum rap--of course he eats people, he's a TIGER. What did she expect? Anyway.

What's the name of the story?

Nice! I don't know why, but I just love that background more than anything else. Well done, as usual.

Beastiality never was my kick, but whatever floats your noodle.

Bitchen robe she has there, and I love the feel of the colors between it and the tiger. I don't notice the background much at all, actually.

This is lovely. Both the Tiger and the woman seem to be glancing off in their own little worlds, minds not quite on where they are. I love the way her garment hangs , the subtle striping on his fur and the setting behind/around them is very believable and attractive. Well done!

Great painting all 'round, Ursula!

Beautiful! The background is lush and the tiger/drapery look great. The only small suggestion I can make is that her hand position, particularly her thumb, look a little awkward. But the whole looks great.

This is beautiful!

Art at its best.
