Tiger Hunt

As celebrations for the Chinese Year of the Tiger begin this week, I have been reminiscing about the first time I saw a tiger in India, its three-metre long body gliding through a deserted Raj temple. I was lucky enough to see this tiger go on to hunt and the pictures I went on to paint became some of my most popular.
These powerful animals are surely among the most beautiful in the world. And yet tigers as a species are in grave danger. It seems they may be under even greater threat during this apparently auspicious year.
To read abut my encounter with tigers see The Yorkshire Post this weekend.
