Fire and Ice by Aikya Fire and Ice by Aikya
Original painting is for sale. Please note me if you are interested!

More colorful tigers! I’ve had this idea in my head for a long time and I’m happy with the way it turned out. The biggest challenge was not letting the blues and reds mix to create muddy colors. The paints were so much fun to work with and I love the contrast between the colors! :heart:

Mediums used: watercolor paints on watercolor paper, gouache.
Size: 8in.X12in.
My own photo reference was used.

Hi there! As a fellow artist, I would like to notify you of someone who is taking credit for your work. His name is Hunter Hartford and you can find him on Facebook.
It's possible he deleted the photo or that you won't be able to see it because you aren't friends with him. Just thought I should let you know. It's a lovely work. :)

Actually yes that's what the fire tiger is doing! In the reference photo I took at the Denver zoo the two tigers were fighting, The ice tiger was leaning towards the fire tiger, who had his paw raised and ready to swipe! It was fun to watch! :heart:

Why can't you see what we had
Let the fire burn the ice
Where's the love we once had
Is it all a lie?"

FIRE AND ICE, by Within Temptation

Instantly reminded me of the song, haha ;)
AMAZING ART, as always, I love how smooth your watercolours are :heart:
