As opposed to the previous watercolor paintings, (see Couch Cat, Napping Cat, and Gray Cat) which were all a mix of transparent and opaque paints, this one was done entirely in transparent watercolors. You can really tell the difference. I find the transparent to be frighteningly unpredictable over large areas (like backgrounds) but my opaque backgrounds always dry much too dark. They remind me of one of those cheesy black-velvet numbers!
Anyway, I like this one. It's based on a photo I got at Wet Canvas of a cat named Amber. She reminds Steph and I of our fat, grumpy girl, Gracie.
