Look Back In Anger

'Look Back In Anger' is an original graphite pencil drawing on Bristol board. Highly detailed and realistic, it is a portrait of a snarling tiger. A great pose captured in my reference photograph from Pixabay. I've added a little more interest to the background by using a water spray technique. A very light spray, carefully applied over a wash of graphite. The droplets of water lift the surface grain of the paper slightly as they dry. Once blended, interesting patterns and speckles emerge (not for the faint hearted after spending thirty or more hours drawing the main subject) Then I've lifted out some areas with a putty rubber to give the impression of a cloud of hot breath diffusing into the chilly air.


Measuring approximately 10.5 x 15.5 inches, this drawing is presented in a white mount within a 2cm square, distressed, bright silver frame to a total size of about 17.5 x 23 inches, ready to hang. It is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
