Oh Charlotte. Cutest and completely adorable photo I was send for custom watercolor cat painting! This watercolor painting video is a real time version and it shows in details the different step to paint a cat watercolor portrait. Emily had 3 watercolor cat paintings done from me! She couldn’t wrap her head around the idea to only get only one of her pet watercolor portrait so we ended up planning for a triptych !
(Another of my serial clients I talked about in another video ! Remember? :D )
When working on these dark colored fur, make sure to let it breathe. Otherwise you end up with a blob of paint ! Notice how careful I get when working around the arms and the belly areas, watercolor painting are different than any other medium as you don’t have a second chance to place your shapes and darker tones. It is better to work slowly and always keep in mind where the light is coming from.
