This set of book matched Velvet tiger paintings reminds us of the 1970s paintings on velvet by Pogetto. (From the Velveteria collection in ??Black Velvet Masterpieces?). The point were gentle strokes marry the velvet background gives an illusion of beautifully airbrushed look. These types of paintings were never quite as celebrated or as popular as canvas work. A particular method and light touch is required to bring work like this to life, which makes it less easy execute than painting on canvas. Well deserved praise is due to this phenomenal technique, these stunning tigers are proof of that.
