Big Cat, Little Cat!

I've named this painting - "That's Mine!" due to the intense expression on this cat's face.

Watercolour can be so exciting, particularly when you take chances and try to work with the paint, rather than trying to control it. I love that it has a will of its own - paint with attitude!

This was an exciting and spontaneous piece to paint and I made bold decisions! Colours were dropped onto the paper that I'd wetted, followed by the addition of thick strokes of deep rich paint. I watched the watercolour paint on the paper work its magic and, it was only when it was starting to dry, that I lifted very small sections where needed with a dry brush.

Simply Magic!!!
