I'm digging, I only have a week

I actually started this before the alleged watercolor class so I don't know if it counts. I have seen some paintings that I love, other artists work and decided to play a bit, try some new things. I have decided that I love color, I always knew that but I am now saying it out loud! For me personally, much of the story is told with color, its what makes my heart sing. I thought I would paint my daughters cat, I may do her several times, differently, for fun. Here is my first attempt, I actually added some oil pastels, just a bit to see how the watercolor reacted with them. Some of the colors did well while others I didn't care for, its all an experiment anyway. I think it looks a bit like an oil or acrylic painting. I really had fun doing it, and I am pleased with the way it turned out too! It is supposed to be stylized version of her cat, not a illustration, how did I do? What does this painting tell you about me that I haven't told you here? Anything?

Hmmm... does this painting say that you feel you are being closely watched?
;-) Great piece - and I DO love the color!

i love this cat! those eyes are priceless. lol i have one cat(my usernamesake, Fozbot) that just sits and stares at me with that same look. i always wonder what she's thinking. good thoughts, i hope. i like the mix of the oil pastel and watercolor very much. i'd still spot this for a watercolor painting.
