This month's project for WatercolorWorkshop, one of my favorite groups, is pets. I found a terrific cat photo on WetCanvas (hope it's okay to mix groups) and painted this fluffy critter for my entry. It was the first time I've painted "fur". I was drawn to the softness of the cat, and the bright blue eyes. I really enjoyed this one. P.S. The reference photo for this watercolor was taken by Sandy Derry. You can view her artwork at www.countrycottagestudio.homestead.com

This is one of the paintings I started in the Camden watercolor workshop with Joel Popadics. We had a good view of the lighthouse and I'm pretty pleased with my painting, with the exception of the size of the schooner. I added it from memory because I thought it would be a nice touch, but in reality, a schooner would have been much larger. I may have to call this one "Lighthouse With Toy Schooner".
