This is a portrait of my precious cat called Susu. It's a bit colorful :) but, I really couldn't help it after the fur started to look like a rainbow.

W&N watercolors
300g rough grain watercolor paper
size A3 approximately

Man, this is gorgeous. I am very envious of your watercolor technique.

The luminous quality in the eyes is my favorite portion of this piece (it is hard to get that luminous glow in any medium, I think), but I love the use of the mossy green in the highlight/shadow areas as well.

Thank you :) I started this painting sitting in our summer cottage's porch and it was raining heavily. I think it was a very helpful thing for creating the subtle tone changes in the eyes because the moisture in the air kept the paper a little damp constantly. I'm glad you like it :rose:

thank you :) i really wasn't sure about that background coloring, I was afraid it could be -considering the amount of color in the cat- a bit too much. But I'm glad it gets nice comments too.

Wonderful colors. I think the rough grainy surface looks nice in here. My old neighbour had precisely same-looking cat... Lovely breed, I want one for myself someday.

Kiitos! Ehkä sitten toi paperin laatu on vaan makukysymys :) Tää on ihan maatiaiskissa, suosittelen lämpimästi kissan ottamista, elämään tulee lisää iloa roppakaupalla.

Taatusti! Oisin ehdottomasti hankkinut kissan aikoja sitten jos vuokraisäntäni ei sitä olisi kieltänyt :/ tyydyn siis katselemaan kissakuvia ja -videoita netistä, heh.
