WDE Jan 5, 2018 Three Tabbies & Challenge

Five minute challenge sketch went as I figured. I cheated and took a brush to it for 30 more seconds. This is in a 5.5 x 8" Strathmore Visual Journal with my favorite purple gel pen.




And I just had to paint the kittens because I didn't get around to painting Kay's cats last week.

8 x 10" watercolor with a touch of white gouache. About 3 hours.

Awww your kittens are sweet! Beautiful fluffy kittens. They look very gentle and mild in your interpretation. I like the muted green you used for the background too, highlights the warmth of the russet patches in their fur and gives a nice summery feeling to it.

Very cool on the challenge trees, well done! You caught the individual nature of each of them and the wash effect came out beautiful. Monochrome can be gorgeous.

I love your challenge picture, the simplicity of it is so effective and the brish ahs given it a lovely softness.

Love the kitten painting too, I'm glad this ref is popular. They look so fluffy and I love their paws too.

Both are good! I like how you repeated the same green colour in the background, the stripes and the kittens eyes.

Your wc's are so warm and fully realized. You brought those kitties to life. LOVE the flower sketch. Very pretty.

Both well done. Good idea to use the brush in the 5 minute sketch. The kittens are done. With a light touch. You have kept the colours fresh.
