Two pages torn from my Moleskine watercolor notebook. I did these last spring when I first got the notebook and wasn't happy with them, so I tossed the notebook to back of the closet. I'm thinking now maybe it wasn't the notebook's fault! I wasn't painting a lot then and may have been trying too hard--a sure way to disappointment. But I'm going to give Moleskine another try.
(These are two of my cats: Nanda, who looks considerably slimmer here than in real life, and Smilla, who looks considerably more sedate. Carlos wasn't attempted because he's striped!) If you want to see some truly lovely, amazing paintings of cats, you should go directly to http://minekereinders.blogspot.com/ and look at her 2008 cat calendar. I ordered one from her site so I can look at these paintings every day.
