I call this painting, "One Simple Act of Kindness". This was the first cat I've ever painted. This was a fun way to practice and get more experience with watercolor. Now I'm not intimidated to paint more furry cats, well, not as much. (I'm still learning how to use watercolor).
For those who have trouble drawing or just want to get to the painting, you can transfer your image onto watercolor paper by printing out the image, taping it to a window and taping the watercolor paper over it, so the sun creates a natural lightbox. You can also use a lightbox, graphite paper, or in a dark room hold your paper over your tablet or computer monitor and trace the image.
I used 100% cotton paper, 140 lb cold press. I don't have a list of colors I use because when I paint a picture from a reference photo there is no information that tells me what colors to use. I pick a color or mix colors.
