This is Chester as a 14×14 watercolour 140lb Arches cp.
I was compelled to attempt another cat watercolour to work on the challenge of painting fur (they don’t get much furrier than Chester), and because of the beautiful light in the reference photo. I thought the subject would be difficult and spent a long time over the past few weeks fussing over the details. In the end it turned out to be the background that was the most challenging.
Thank-you to my friend and talented photographer, Pam Butler, who provided the excellent reference photo to work from and thanks to Chester for sitting so pretty.
