Fortunately one of the tigers at the zoo was lying on a rock in front of me napping! That gave me a few minutes to sketch an animal who actually stayed still. We made it a very brief stop at this exhibit because with only a lean-to for shelter, we were getting really cold! I did the border, lettering, and watercolor wash after I got home.


  1. Nice! There's something about the slope of a tiger's nose that you've captured just right. And I like how you've done a tiger striped border.

  2. Ruca, many thanks! I'm starting to have lots of fun with the borders and titles. :)
