Lady and Tiger WIP

Hello, all.
So yeah, I've been meaning to get a sketch blog together for a long time. Several factors have been obstructing my doing so for a while. I just got a new laptop, which helps matters immensely. Computer access is an important element to maintaining a blog, after all.
I would like to try to update daily, though that more than likely won't happen. So I'll just chalk it up to as often as possible. :)

First up is a work in progress. It's been a long while since I've tried a hand in acrylic painting. I've always enjoyed it and fancied myself as being fairly good at it, but for some reason I just don't do it often. I tend to float more towards digital painting. Less messy and more portable. I'm going to try to do more traditional paintings, though. I think my portfolio would benefit.

The working title for this is "Lady and Tiger". I've never been that great at titling my work. This is meant to be an experiment. It is on a 12"x16" canvas board. I was trying to go sort of minimalist on the background, using as little paint as possible to convey environment. For a lot of it I used paint splatters for the forest in the background with detail filled in later.

Here is the pic with the background only.

And here it is with the lady. I'm currently working on the tiger.
