This is a painting I made in preparation for the Lunar New Year 2022, which will be the year of the Tiger. It was very fun adding the stripes and playing with colour gradients. I enjoyed painting this tiger tremendously!
I wanted something peaceful and Spring-ful for this occasion. I used watercolours on watercolour paper.
When I scanned this picture, the scanner did something very weird to the background colours, so I ended up switching things up a little for the print and cards. I really like this revamped version too as it makes me think of Asian calligraphy paintings.
If you like this illustration, it is available as a print and as a card in my shop. Each time you purchase something from my shop, you support my work as an independent artist.
