OK, here is my first try at painting the cat and moon sketch. I did it on cold press watercolor paper and I think I'd prefer a soft press or hot press....I dunno. What I do know is it's been way too long since I have painted with traditional watercolor on paper!! I am so out of practice and my confidence level isn't too great either.
I like the original sketch of the cat better...back to the drawing board but I just thought I'd post this first try anyway.
