Another Tabby Cat on Fisher paper: Finished

To bid click here.
I was going to paint a background but then decided that the colour of the paper complimented him quite nicely.
Final size 6 x 8, I added watercolour as an under painting in places, and acrylic as highlights in places. For the short fur I let the paper show through as it ties it all together.

I am finding the Fisher paper very versatile, it takes watercolour with no problems even
wet(ish) in wet.

This is just gorgeous Gayle. Love the soft fur and those eyes are awesome. Great job. I have never heard of Fisher Paper. I will do a search.
I agree with you about the BG.

I have never heard of Fisher paper, but I love what you are doing with it! We had a cat named Barney in the 80's, and this could be his portrait. That is EXACTLY what he looked like! Beautiful work!
