What artist doesn’t paint their pets? Something (or someone as some may see it) that is loved so much deserves their own portraits. After having watched a tutorial on painting fur in watercolour, I thought I would try my hand at it with a quick sketch.
First layer of paint goes down of my Birman cat with Daniel Smith tube paint color Buff Titanium.
After the initial layer was dry I painted fur strokes with Buff Titanium and Goethite mix.
I layered Raw Umber on the darker areas of face.
And finally I placed the darkest layer of paint on the face and painted the gorgeous blue eyes.
