Daydreaming Cat ~ day 6 of 30 paintings in 30 days challenge
6x9 watercolor on Kilimanjaro 140 lb cold press paper that is today's work for Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. A semiannual international event has many people participating. This is Chuy, my grey tabby who will turn 16 this year, and he is such a sweetheart. Not many colors used with this: Ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, quinacridone gold, and Payne's Grey. A very small amount of carbazole violet used at the base of Chuy's ear. After the background was put in I lightly pulled up some color with a rag while wet, then added quin gold to lighter areas on the cat's fur.
