Goodnight - December EAP2012 by Catherine-PL Goodnight - December EAP2012 by Catherine-PL
Watercolour and addition of white acrylic on A4 paper.

My early december submission for Endangered Art Project 2012 [link]

Siberian tiger (Panthera tigris altaica):
"Also known as the Amur tiger, is a tiger subspecies inhabiting mainly the Sikhote Alin mountain region with a small subpopulation in southwest Primorye province in the Russian Far East. In 2005, there were 331–393 adult-subadult Amur tigers in this region, with a breeding adult population of about 250 individuals.
The Siberian tiger is the largest living felid and ranks among the biggest felids to ever exist."
from here [link]

Endangered because of low genetic diversity (tigers are weaker and weaker...) and in the past because of new railroads etc. and hunting.

So, now it's finished. 12 artworks were made. Thank you for all comments (I love them!) and attention :) I hope that you, like me, learned something from this project.

Piękne, jak to zobaczyłem pierwszy raz dosłownie szczęka mi opadła, widać że się nie obijasz i dużo wkładasz w swoje prace. Tygrys wygląda niesamowicie, podoba mi się to, że wszystko jest w takiej ciepłej czerwonej tonacji, te pojedyncze włoski futra świetnie się komponują z całością. Nie powiem, że wygląda jak żywy tylko dlatego, bo jak mam być szczery to twój rysunek podoba mi się bardziej niż jakiekolwiek zdjęcie tygrysa. Chciałbym jeszcze kiedyś zobaczyć jakąś twoja prace na podobnych kolorach.
Btw fajny masz tu podpis :D

Dzięki! Właśnie co do kolorystyki miałam wątpliwości, ale musiałam rzucić na chwilę indygo (co za dużo to niezdrowo) i myślę, że coś jeszcze zrobię w takich "czerwonościach" :) Rzeczywiście jak na mnie to robiłam tę pracę długo - jakieś cztery godziny - i zaczęła mnie wciągać mania poprawiania, nie wiem czy to znasz, w każdym razie im dłużej się poprawia tym trudniej jest przestać i łatwiej przesadzić^^
Nie wiem, czy lubię ten mój "prawie realizm ale jednak nie", takie ciężkie i przepracowane mi się to wydaje, tak dalekie od cudownych lekkich akwarel moich mistrzów... Będę malować i zobaczymy, co z tego wyjdzie, na razie boję się, że zaczynam iść w "złym", nieakwarelowym kierunku...
Co do podpisu to wciąż eksperymentuję i szukam czegoś charakterystycznego ale nieprzesadzonego :D Chciałam nawet wykorzystać to, że w "Catherine" jest "Cat" :P

Ja nie mam nic do niebieskości, też bardzo lubię, ale w czerwonościach jest takie jakieś ciepło jakkolwiek idiotycznie by to nie brzmiało bo mówie teraz chyba coś strasznie oczywistego :XD:
Podziwiam, ja najwięcej nad rysunkiem siedziałem 3 godziny ale nawet w połowie nie byłem zbliżony do takiego poziomu detali
mi się podoba ten twój "prawie realizm ale jednak nie" (swoją drogą fajna nazwa, zapoczątkujesz nowy nurt w sztuce :D ) mi na przykład przyjemnie sie patrzy na takie nie do końca realne prace, bo mają zarówno detale którymi można się zachwycac, a z drugiej strony nie są zwykłymi "zdjęciami" albo raczej kopiami rzeczywistości, ale to może być wina mojej skłonności do bujania w obłokach i oderwania od rzeczywistości :XD:
To "K" mi się bardziej podobało niż "Kosiak" a wykorzystanie Cat brzmi ciekawie czekam na jakieś próbne wersje :D

Namalowałam następnego kotowatego i podpisałam "K". Masz na mnie zbyt duży wpływ :P

Nawet nie wiesz, jak miło się to czyta!
A z tym czasem, to ja właśnie podziwiam tych, którzy siadają, godzinę siedzą, wstają i mają lekki i interesujący rysunek. Tak mi się to z akwarelą kojarzy, a akwarelę uwielbiam ;)

Haha, when people say "you are good, you have talent" I'm desperately trying to come up with their expectations, so this is motivational :D Mostly I don't believe that so-called "talent" exists, but thank you anyway for nice words! As I said - it gives motivation :)

Big thanks! I'm so happy that you like it :) I don't think that I'm very talented, but lately I've understood that to be better we have to practice and practice and practice, so I'm doing it :D
Haha, and I'm glad you like these colours.

Cat, I hate to disagree with you lol.
But you are an extremely talented artist. You have a very unique and creative style that sets you apart. You have an excellent eye for color and use it in a way that has realism but is distinctly different from the stereotype artwork.

What you said is very true also tho. Practice makes everyone better even the most proficient artist. Not just in learning control of their mediums but stimulating the creative process and making the artist improve their own particular techniques and style.:)

I'm blushing. Really.
I see so many great artists here on dA that I just can't believe in myself as strong as you seem to do. I don't even know if "talent" exists.
I'm glad we agree at least about practice :P Sadly now I have to learn for school a lot, that leaves very little time for art :(
Thank you again for comments!
