Watercolor Kitten

Watercolor painting of kittenHere’s a kitten that I sketched out in pencil first and outlined in black ink. I then colored it in with my Pelikan watercolor set. I was experimenting with layering colors and attempted to give this one a more cartoony/illustration look. I recently got a bottle of Higgins white ink, which is what I used for the whiskers, but they’re a bit transparent.

I kind of wish I’d spent more time on the initial drawing for this one! Specifically the tail area/back legs – I think it’s looking a bit vague and unformed. But I actually quite like the rest of him!
