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.

My wild lion was painted using some wild colours in a wild moment! I have to confess to being sometimes too happy with my palette of colours - the ones that have become my friends as I know and understand them so well. But how liberating it can feel to bring some new colours into the equation! And in this case, these were colours that I wouldn't expect to see on a lions head....but, for me, somehow it works.
Stepping out of your comfort zone is not always easy, yet can be so exciting!
