Watercolor Wednesday

borangecat-copy-1

This kiity got a little busy and a little muddy with so much subtle information to convey, that I worked some white into it.  While I’m not crazy about using opacity in my watercolors, I tried it anyway to bring cohesion to the image.  My challenge is to try this subject again, including all her stripes and varied values without the use of white.

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. I must avoid reading your descriptions in general. Makes me nervous. I’m a naive who loves every creation of yours!! Alright..alright, let’s see how it comes about with stripes and without white :))

  2. I’m just in awe at anyone who can draw furry animals!! It looks like a lot of work!!!
    Your kitty seems so nicely comfortable taking a snooze….ah…reminds me of a raining cool afternoon, snuggling in bed!! LOL

    1. It is a bit daunting to work with the fur and then the markings, choosing what to add and what to leave out. Yes, she’s got it pretty good. Right now she’s napping on my bed:) Thanks Shree!

  3. Captured the spirit and gesture of the pose nicely. Love the outstretched paw – makes me want to reach out and give her a pet, but she probably wouldn’t like being woken up =)

  4. I’ll just tip toe by ….. shouldn’t want to disturb such a sleeping beauty ….
    Such marvellous magic in this painting Elena 🙂
