Cat! (xpost watercolor)

Hi everyone, it's been awhile. I've been very busy with pet portrait commissions, and school (will be finishing my course soon! Yay!)

Here's a commission that I completed a few months ago The client had requested for me to include the concrete drain cover in the painting, as it was her cat's favorite spot.

"Stubby"
15" x 11"
Watercolor, on Arches 140lbs CP

Please feel free to give me your feedback!

This is a superb portrait, wonderful detail in the fur and I like how you included the drain cover. Good work!

Love the direct eye contact with 'Stubby" and the detail in the coat. Treasured for sure.

Beautiful and well done IMHO the very dark in the drain cover is a bit distracting

Re: Cat! (xpost watercolor)

Wow, this is amazing! It's not just a painting of a cat, but it's a painting of a very particular cat. Meaning, I can see the personality and the character of this beautiful cat in your work. Exceptional work! I love it!

Re: Cat! (xpost watercolor)

Wow! I love your style. Stubby comes through as an individual with a strong personality, laying in a favorite spot. Love that detailed, exquisite style with all those fine lines and gradations, reminds me of Audubon and other classical natural history artists... applied to a sweet, fascinating cat! Stubby is awesome. Gorgeous portrait. I'm sure the client's thrilled and overjoyed! I would be!
