Eye of the Tiger #1 -- I Can Wait

"Eye of the Tiger I -- I Can Wait"  (Watercolor)  C. Eastwood, © 2014
We've just finished working on a personal series of three paintings.  I originally decided to try my hand at painting lions and tigers.  (And everyone added, "...and bears! Oh my!")  At first there was no particular reason other than I hadn't tried painting either one before and I thought it would be interesting.  But along the way my focus shifted to the tigers and the intensity of their expression.  I painted them softly, almost gently, but let their intensity and strength come through the eyes.
