Cool Colored Cat

11x15 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper painted today.  We had been given December's watermedia challenge on WetCanvas and it was to make a painting bold and bright using ideas given.  This kitty is an orange tabby so I've taken artistic license and selected a color at random and voila! He is a purple puss with bright orange and red accents; background darks are a combination of indigo blue and carbazole violet.  Bed linens and pillow are thin washes of blue bice and light purple then darker splatters while still wet.
