Kitty Kitty in South Carolina


5″ by 7″ $50.00 watercolor on Gessoed paper.
This cat seems to be saying ” let me take a better look” or maybe its the lady bug who’s doing the talking.
I have a black and white cat and she’s not only very cute, but does a lot of funny things. She has a smudge right on the tip of one side of her nose and sometimes she can look rather comical just sitting there. She only weighs nine pounds but her name is Chubbs. It’s the really long hair that makes her look so big. I had planned to paint something else but like many days this is just what wanted to be painted. I was drawing and there it was… the first few lines looked like a cat and I went with it. In fact sometimes just a line or a curve of a line will look like something to me and whatever it was I was planning to draw is thrown out for the object which I see in that line and is appearing before me.

Great watercolory look to the fur on this! It just says so much while remaining very simply painted, just enough to show fur texture.

Nice! Susan
