'Jungle Tabby'

Framed original
16" x 12" including frame


I had great fun with the setting for this cat, cracking the wax to let in the dark colours in for the branch.  To get the texture I want, I screw up the cloth into a ball.  The wax cracks, creases and quite often falls off altogether.  Before dyeing it, I must repair cracks that I don't want on the cat itself.  The overlapping leaves are done with overlapping brush strokes of hot wax, then a darker colour dyed on the back of the cloth.

Sadly this piece is sold but if you would like to talk about commissioning one like it, email me
