Java Banteng and other life studies

Thylacine & Weaver painting

Attached this time a painting I´ve been commissioned to create, and is based on the best preserved photograph of 19th cetury showing a Thylacine and a hunter. Thanks to legend at the bottom of the photo we know that the hunters name was Weaver. This image was taken in a time where the existence of Thylacine was taken as granted and he was hunted merciless, blamed for livectock loses. I`ve added also the original photograph as well my first attempts to " understand"  the image, a sepia fineliner drawing and a watercolour, a coloured version of it.    

Giraffe life watercolour in the zoo

It was an unforgetable experience!
