At play!


Cats at Play! 9 x 11" Watercolor and Ink

Its back to cats again! I wanted to try to do a composition using several cats, brightly colored. Compositions using several different objects can be tricky... its important to keep the eye moving through the picture and balance colors and shapes without creating monotony. These are quirky and fun... Who knows what I'll do with this collection!

Just found your blog. I teach art as well. Really enjoyed this piece; it's fun and energetic. I really appreciate your use of color and composition. You've really captured the feline quality of play in a very graphical way.
