Angel and demon, oil on canvas, 16”x20″


1 in stock


In the beginning I was drawing this angel tiger pale yellow as in digital sketch. However when I apply the oil paint on canvas, it doesn’t look as expected. After all, I don’t want the tiger and it’s wings feel separated. So I change the color of the angel tiger to white with pale pink hue.

The demon tiger should be “black” ideally. However, dark blue with purple hint is easier to represent “evil”. If you watch enough movies you would find the bad guy always has color theme like blue with purple or purple with red. The good guy often has warm color theme such as light yellow, light orange or pink, golden yellow and so on. This is the general guideline when choosing color palette for angel and demon tigers.

This piece was painted on Fredrix Blue label ultra smooth stretch canvas in traditional profile 3/4”. It has been varnished and carefully packaged with two same size cardboards, buffering paper, bubble wrapping paper and 4 corner protectors.

Although I have tried my best to match the color of digital profile and the actual product, the color might still vary depending on different monitor settings. Please be aware of this fact.

Note, the painting ships unframed.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
