ok I need some serious help with this one .
I feel the part in the water between the tiger and the rock is ok but the part behind the rock don't feel right

Could you take an other picture of it, because it is sideways and i think the color on the picture is not the same as your painting.  Your tiger looks pretty good.You may want to crop out the other seroundings. :clap:

Bert,

Hope you weren't sketching that tiger en plein air!

Looking good. 

How's India?

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Nice job on the tiger Bert. Just feel that the water and landline should be demarcated more clearly, perhaps, with the water being a slightly different colour from the land instead of a dark green line to differentiate the two, but that's just me.

I agree with Patricia,   you could add a light wash of burnt siena in the trees and maybe a light of blue here and there int the water. If you are making movement in the water you have to make it smaller, shorter as you go to the background.  Hope this help.

 :eek: What a doh head!! I must have wiped out my comment when I flipped your photo!  :doh:

Well, it was much along the lines of Patricia's comment. (She's so clever!) To create better definition between the land and water via colour change. The tiger is brilliant!  O0     :clap: :clap: :clap:

Bert,

Yes, better now.  Maybe even a bit more blue in the water around the tiger.  Looks too green, but that could be the photo or the color of the water in India??  Never been there.

Happy you are getting some painting time.

Bert, I like the background vegetation behind the tiger.  Looks better now.
