I had time to do a couple of watercolors today. First, a portrait of my cat, who has the silly name Mittens. He acts like a Mafia boss, and he has such a cutesy little name – of course when he was a kitten we didn’t know he’d grow up to be such a tough guy (my neighbor here in France swears he has a New Jersey accent)
We’re working on fur in Kate’s online watercolor class. I hated my first one, but this one is starting to look like him. I seem to need to do everything at least twice.
This is a tiny jpeg becaue the blog format distorts all of the larger ones – for a better look you can see it on my yahoo blog.
and some pears done this afternoon during my weekly art day with Ronell.
I’m gradually moving away from my dependence on line – I want it to be a choice and not a necessity.
