First Prize
For my entry in a
Competition judged by Pollyanna Pickering

The Judge's Remarks

"I loved the placing of the tigers in the Siberian landscape - it brought back memories of my journey to the Russian Far East to sketch the Amur Tigers a couple of years ago.  I love the subtle colours of the birch trees against the snow, and the softness of the background, which places the tigers in their Russian home, but still makes them the main focus of the painting.  the tigers are also very accurately depicted!"

The Competition

To create a piece of artwork - in any medium using the tigers in the photo below. The creative part is to place the tigers in the photo below in a different setting. You can use the photo in any way you wish. You can paint one tiger or both, full bodies or cropped. The only stipulation is that you depict them in a different setting. Let your imagination run wild. For instance you could place them high up on a rocky outcrop, in a sun dappled forest or next to the calm still waters of a lake or river."
