Mixed media. Pastels and oils on gesso reworked with Corel Painter 12
Done to celebrate the birth of my 2nd son Gregory on September 20, 2013. Painting is 50cm x 80cm, close up is ~40cm x 50 cm. Final painting will be posted later.
Original painting is horizontal and feature 2 bengal tiger. I thought that the 1rst tiger was interesting enough to do a single portrait. I erased digitally the 2nd tiger and cropped the picture vertically and just added a similar background)
