What's New Pussycat?

11x15 watercolor and India ink on Saunders 140 lb cold press paper, painted this afternoon.  I first sketched him in pencil then went over the lines with black ink. When almost dry I began laying in browns and golds wet on dry with 1" sable flat brush.  This is Roger, a cat I had years ago, doing his thing:  Sleeping! Colors used: Sepia, quinacridone burnt orange and gold, raw umber, UB, Coastal Fog, permanent rose.

Kay I love it. Glad to see you paint. Cats are amazing animals and perfect subjects. I have 8 and never tried to paint one. I'm scared! Beautiful.
