TIGERS EYE GENUINE
Tiger’s-Eye Genuine is made from the golden to red-brownish color stone, Tiger's-Eye, a chatoyant gemstone (resembles a cat's eye). It is a member of the quartz family and has rippling bands of light caused by geological staining with dark iron oxide. This combination of quartz and iron oxide produces another of Daniel Smith's remarkable Primatek paints that is very transparent and non-staining as well as strongly colored and granulating. The color is olive drab with undertones of cool ash brown. The textural effects of this pigment make it a sure favorite with landscape and artist who love to paint from nature.
“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
