The piercing gaze of a tiger is always captivating to me. They are hunters. Always on the prowl. Always hungry. In this work I wanted to capture the intensity of his eyes. It is created on Arches Aquarelle Watercolor Paper, Rough, 140 lb. The drawing was created using a fine point Sharpie with crosshatching.
