Bengal Majesty - Emily Holsman
Painting a tiger was exciting, daunting and quite riveting. My only regret is I didn't tackle the task sooner.
It was certainly a challenge and I felt a great sense of responsibility throughout, as I was anxious not only to produce a beautiful painting but to render justice to a magnificent creature.
There was a presence and stature that the picture had to convey. I found it became less of an image and more of a tribute as the painting developed.
I felt a strong emotional attachment throughout the process and as delighted as I am with the finished product, I couldn't help but feel disappointed when our relationship evolved to a point where we went our separate ways.
