"Eye of the Tiger Cub" is a clayboard piece that is 5" x 5", and it took approximately 6 hours to complete. This technique involves scratching and painting, in multiple layers, to achieve the hair-like result. The original will be for sale at the RFA Fall Show in Regina, SK, and if it doesn't sell, it will be available for sale on my website at BigCatArt.com.
The reference photo for this painting was taken by the artist at the "Guzoo" in Three Hills, AB. This tiger cub was only about 10 weeks old! He was a wonderful subject.
Thanks to everyone who views and comments, the feedback is much appreciated!
