Mystery Calico

Watercolor Painting Pet Portrait Animal Art Cat Feline

Watercolor on Arches watercolor paper, 8" x 10".

I used the same beautiful Calico cat, Sarah, as a model again.  This time I painted her in watercolors and not oils.  I especially like the transparent color washes of the background which frame the cat's figure and helps to set a mood.  Her neatly folded paws were a treat also.  I think I will be doing more watercolors for a while along with my oils.  Love them both! (sometimes).

Sleepy Foal

Oil Painting Horse Art Portrait Farm Animals Country Equine
