Pets and their People for PPF

Watercolor Illustrations For Christmas
People and Pets

This is one of my favorite couples. 5x7 watercolor.


I made loose style 6x6 inch watercolor paintings with pen and ink for two sisters, my relatives actually, for Christmas presents. I hope they like them. It was fun trying to get the personalities of both the cats and the girls.

    1. Thanks, Minniemie, for your comments. I learned to paint cats by doing them over and over. I think I will do more! This method is fun.
