At long last I feel ready to call this painting done. My final painting for Painting Drama 2, this has been a marathon piece of pushing harder and further than I’ve ever reached when painting before. Supported and pushed by the amazing Circle Of Trust at Oatley Academy (not just amazingly talented artists, but folks I’m very lucky to call my good friends too!) I’m happy to say this one feels like a win, though I’m already taking notes on what I’d do differently next time. Always the way!

It feels like a great way to round off a creative dry spell (darn work!) during July, and to kick start my (he)art going into August ahead of CTNX.

More to follow in the next couple of days, including a whole host of wips and examples of the redraws and stages this painting went through… but for now here it is: Tiger, Tiger.
