Childhood Dreams - The Dangerous Ride by 

Imagine yourself as a child wanting to feel the thrill of a dangerous ride. You look and there stands a tiger. Not just any tiger, but the kind that looks mean and ferocious. The kind that could run fast and eat you. Then you realize, it won’t eat you, but you can ride it while it hunts. Woo hoo! :o)

Created from a sketch and painted in Photshop using my natural media brushes and my impressionistic style. This had 6 layers and took about 5 hours to paint.

    What a great story! As usual, your palette of colours is vibrant, and the textures super. The tiger is my animal guide, I always feel it’s a good sign when I see one of them. :)

  • Since I was born in the Year of the Tiger and I’m a Sagitarrius, this always is a special animal to me. My animal guide was always a hawk. Sometimes Redtail, sometimes Peregrine. Funny how that works. :o) Thank you Josette.
