9x12, watercolour, Canson cold-press
Two of my favourite things... my Libby cat (18 years old in the new year) and a lovely snow day. Dreaming of the latter - no real snow to speak of yet. *sigh*
Libby is an amazing little spitfire - still going strong at her age and still plays like a kitten. I have to say she is one tough little cat to paint, though. Since she\'s a \'torbie\' (tabby/tortoise-shell mix), she\'s got so many different colours, facial markings and her nose is really unique. I had to do it over SO many times to get it right, because it just didn\'t look like her if I didn\'t have her nose correct. It was funny, because she was in my lap a lot of time I was painting her too (critiquing my work!).
I have another 3 cats who are waiting \"patiently\" to have their portraits done: Bebe, Pookey and Sookey. I guess this officially makes me a nutty cat lady.
