This is a 36" x 24" oil on canvas.
Years ago I was at a museum and copied a japanese painting of a tiger from the EDO period. I did that in pastel on paper. The drawing of the tiger in this painting is from that. The black rectangular object is a Tendo Kai. It is used to hold down paper when doing chinese ink drawings. Some companies in china will have a table setup for visitors to do a quick drawing. This tendo kai is from a fabric factory near the Three Rivers Gorge. The cups are teacups from Osaka.
I set this up in a shadow box and worked from that.
I have mixed feelings about this one. It has been the most difficult one that I have done yet.
