How to Paint a Cat in Watercolor

In 2 weeks I have an intention to represent my new educational DVD. The topic is "Animals". One of 6 video lessons on DVD is about how to paint fur of a cat. Here is that lesson briefly.


  • I am using a pallete limited to earth colors (burnt umber, raw umber, sepia, black), except for blue eyes.
  • I am first painting in wet and adding dry brush in the end for the texture.
  • The eyes of the cat I am keeping dry and white while first washing.
  • First washes are of warm colors in wet, then are coming darker and cooller in wet.
  • I am focusing on the muzzle, the rest is not important.
There might be different tips for a different case, but I am sure they will be helpfull.
