Precious Tiger original oil painting of an orange tiger art nouveau contemporary abstract


Precious Tiger is a 30x30x1.5 inches +oil on canvas of a sinuous orange tiger slinking down a branch in an art nouveau contemporary abstract painting style. She is on a purple tree with lots of intricate branches weaving around her and golden light shines thought the tree behind her. The style is deliberately abstract and the tiger is stylized to make her slightly mystical as she sashays along her tree looking for something in the distance. Tigers are in trouble and may one day be mythical beasts. This one is ahead of the game and I painted her partly for the sheer pleasure all artists get from painting tigers, but also because I was thinking about their plight and wanting to make a space for a tiger to be safe. Hence the fairy tale space and golden light and sense that something is happening here that we don’t fully know about… Dedicated to all those fighting to save our beautiful wildlife. Keep fighting please. White edges, deep edge canvas, no frame needed, ready to hang.

[caption id="attachment_227430" align="alignnone" width="358"] sdr[/caption] I am a professional artist based in Sussex, England and I paint large semi-abstract original landscapes, seascapes, animal and bird inspired paintings in oil on canvas. My painting style is a fusion of abstract, traditional, expressionist, impressionist, and a little art nouveau. Most of my paintings are also available as prints on paper or canvas. Art is a communication form. Many artists don’t know what they are trying to communicate and so try lots of different things before finding out. Probably most of us do. Personally, it took me until I was 54 before I found out what the hell I was trying to communicate and it turned out to be rather simple. I am trying to capture a tiny part of the magic I experience in looking at nature, so that I can keep a bit it of it forever by fixing it as a painting on a canvas. I get inspiration for these images by various means but the best one of all is by walking and looking. I like to print pub walks off of the internet for different areas of South East England and simply go and explore. The instructions are often out of date or the writer was drunk so I often get lost but this is all part of the fun. My ultimate goal with my painting is to one day paint something so captivating that I will not be able to look away. Then I want to disappear into it and find all the things that really ought to be there. It may or may not ever happen but it is a great carrot to my donkey...
