“Watercolor Tiger”

Open Edition Photographic Print

Description

The Bengal tiger is at the top of the food chain, but their presence in the wild means more than just having a apex predator around. They are considered a “keystone species” – meaning that without them, the entire ecosystem would collapse. Tiger’s main prey are large ungulates (hoofed mammals – like deer or boar) which are herbivores. Without tigers to keep their populations in check, the forest ecosystem would collapse. Today, less the 4% of the forest habitat that tigers call home is left intact in India – home to 2/3 of the world’s tigers.

The good news! As of 2016, tiger populations were on the rise for the first time in a century. This was thanks to large-scale anti-poaching programs and the creation of wildlife corridors to connect “islands” of tiger habitat.

Though Tim usually paints with oils, this depiction of a Bengal tiger is a rare departure. While working with animals and teaching at a summer camp in Carlsbad, California, Tim held a contest for new groups of campers each week. The winner of an oragami boat race down nearby Sunny Creek received an original painting. This simple watercolor painting of a tiger was one of them.
