Kitty





This is done in ivory black, with white gel pen for the whiskers. 5x7 size.

I copied this from a painting I found online, but can't find the info to who to contribute it to. My goal was to learn how to paint in fewer strokes since my natural tendency seems to be to overwork!

I had to layer multiple times to get the black to look black. The paint was a Jackson's pan. Maybe I just don't know the technique to get color intense the first time?

Any and all suggestions and critiques are greatly welcomed.

Re: Kitty

Nice painting. What a pretty kitty.

It's pretty hard to get very dark with watercolours and even harder when using pans in my experience. It's easier if you use fresh tube paint with little water (impasto).

Re: Kitty

Love, love, love cats! This is so wonderful and so catty, it could almost meow at us. For the blackest black, a mix works best for me using the following combinations if you want to try them:
1. alizarin crimson + thalo green
2. ultramarine blue + quinacridone burnt orange
3. indigo blue + burnt sienna
