White spirit, bright future By Robbie Graham
'White spirit, bright future' Painted in gouache on board. The white tiger is a recessive mutant of the Bengal tiger, which is reported in the wild from time to time. It is larger than other tigers, both at birth and when fully grown. Currently, several hundred white tigers are in captivity worldwide, with about one hundred being found in India. Nevertheless, their population is on the increase which is wonderful. In this painting, I wanted to depict the beauty of this magnificent creature and the fact that despite the significant threat to normal coloured tigers, its future is as bright as its eyes!
