Sketch Book – Goan Tiger (I mean Leopard)

This is a sketch I did in Goa, then ruined, then reconstructed.

There was this temple somewhere in Goa with a crude leopard and lion statue guarding its entrance. So when we got back to our huts I tried sketching it.

I botched my first attempt drawing it.

So I drew another version above the first.

But I dislike ruined pages in my sketchbook so I decided to paint over the botched drawing in an attempt to rescue it somewhat.

My trust water colour pencils. Quite old now and generally neglected in favour of my felt pens and crayons.

The ex said they prefered the botched page now because it looked very childish.

I rather like them both next to each other, in tandem as a contrast.

  1. I like the background of the botched one and the tiger of the non-botched. And I love the makeshift paint palette.

  2. I love all the details in the second attempt! And I agree about how cool the “manicures” look. Now I’m eying my sleeping cat, wondering if I just went really slowly…
