Water colors - Cats! ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…

Iโ€™ve been trying watercolors for a week now since, I bought a nice portable kit. They ARE fun, and logistics wise theyโ€™re as easy as it gets. I even bought some refillable watercolor brush pen/marker, that make logistics even easier. Still, Iโ€™m not extremely happy with what Iโ€™m making. Maybe Iโ€™m just more and more demanding of myself?


Anyway, after a portrait that came out of nowhere, I was sort of uninspired, until I decided to get back to what had given me pleasure before (see examples I and II and III): CATS!!!!

First, some sketching off a panache of Google image results:


And then three different levels of success in coloring with watercolors:


I think we can honestly say, some cats were luckier than others in thisโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ™„ (poor 1st cat, Iโ€™m sorry for what you went through).

Anyway, Iโ€™m quite happy with how the black & white and the sleeping cat turned out, and I think I really like painting cats. Iโ€™ve started understanding their anatomy, and this helps with confidence. As for watercolors, I think I might go back to acrylics for the next one. Hope you like them, too!
