White cat

I gave myself the challenge today to paint a friend’s white cat, but with my vibrant colours! It was not easy😅

It was a really good exercise in looking for nuances cause all watercolourists know that painting white means painting the dark shades around the white. It was not an easy exercise. I kept on wanting to give colour to the white parts instead of shaping the white parts with colour.

But as with everything, I know I’ll have to practise doing it so I’m going to try painting my white rabbit next!

If you have any tips for painting white, I’m all ears! Also if this cat makes you think of a cat we all know, let me know who, cause he looks familiar but I can’t put my finger on it!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day doing something you love!


All my paintings are available in prints or you can have a custom hand painted portrait of your fur baby. More info here.
