Cat in Watercolour: Three Stages



From a soft wash,buildng up detail to the final painting,this watercolour of my cat was a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon!

More step by steps and demonstrations can be found in my new book "Atmospheric Watercolours" which leads from how I hold my brush, to techniques I prefer for a variety of subjects.

I just bought this book of yours and it is stunning. Thank you for sharing your talent and insight with is all. I am just trying out water color for the first time and I am excited about the possibilities. I normally use pastels where I have more control but am thinking this is maybe not always a good thing. And I am an artis that does need to loosen up and let my creative self really emerge. Thanks and I look forward to more of your books. Lorraine
