In my painting the reflection on the water is a fantasy/alternative world. I painted this at home while we were on-line learning. I only used blue, red and yellow and mixed all the other colours myself. I researched some of the patterns of the tiger to get the stripe shapes. The background was partly from my imagination and also my experience visiting India, where I saw tigers in the wild. The initial idea was inspired by a blue tiger I saw holding a lamp.
