Wyland's Art Studio - Bengal Tiger

The dramatic markings of wild animals offer a perfect study of contrast. Arranging different colors, shades and textures against each other appeals to our natural love of contrast and adds a heightened element of drama. Artists may use contrast of hue, which is simply a color that has not been diluted. Contrast of value is the range of lightness versus darkness of certain colors. Occasionally, in oil painting, artists will paint entirely in shades of grey. This is the oil equivalent of a tonal drawing. A strong tonal drawing almost always leads to a strong painting. Artists such as Degas understood the effectiveness of color contrast. Wyland explores contrasting shades in this painting of a Bengal Tiger.
