"Cub at Rest" is a 16.75" H x 25.75" W colored pencil with water soluble wax pastel piece on Ampersand Pastelbord. <BR
My model for this work is Atticus, one of the animal models at Triple D Game Farm, when he was just a charming tiger cub. He had romped and splashed in and out of a small pond for some 20 minutes or so when he decided to self-impose a time out. I snapped off a couple of quick shots as he sat there resting amidst the tall grass.
With my painting, I wanted to capture that sense of Attitus' head "popping" amidst those tall grasses. His striping was so vivid, but the portions of his body somewhat hidden in the grasses lost their definition.
It's interesting that cat afficiandos who have seen this piece immediately identify Atticus as a "cub."
