This is a watercolor painting of Ashley I did last Friday. She is one of the two cats we adopted after our old cat ,Murphy, died in December last year. We got Ashley, seven years old , and Precious, one year of age from the animal shelter.I have painted Precious in Acrylics and you can see the painting in my other blog vanya'sArtblog.
Ashley is kind of hard to paint because the color of her fur is very specific. It is something between coffee and cream with grayish hew. Otherwise her face is very expressive. She always looks as if she has been startled or scared maybe because of her shy character.

Apples and plums

This is another quick sketch with watercolors. I used my own reference photo. The paper is
Strathmore again and the paints brand is Reeves. I am going to experiment with better quality supplies when we go back to our house. After the flood in August last year we've been living in a FEMA trailer and I don't have much room for making art. I can't wait to go back and it is going to be pretty soon. I am going to have my own studio on the second floor. It is a small 6x6ft closet with no windows but I will be happy to have a small corner of my own for my art and my supplies.
