ABC Wednesday - W and WOYWW



This week at ABC Wednesday, W gets centre stage.

W is for watercolour - one of my favourite mediums. I have taken several courses and seek to improve. I collect watercolours as well.

This evening, I was looking for some inspiration and then saw the photo of our cat Fluffy, who we had for 21 years, hanging just a few feet away.(She has been gone now for almost 3 years - still miss her)



I attempted to paint her in watercolour, although the colours are a tad darker and not as varied as Fluffy who was a maine coon cat.






W is also for WOYWW, which stands for "What's on Your Workspace Wednesday", a fun weekly gathering where artists from around the world share what and where they have been working the past week.



 I needed to see the photo hanging, so today I worked at my dining room table, where I tend to do small collages and watercolour.

I would love to be able to watercolor too.
It looks like a fun medium.

Very nice! Always wanted to try to paint. But I am more of a pen and paper person!

I can't draw, much less make watercolors go where they're supposed to. Your cat drawing is gorgeous. I had a friend who had a Maine Coon. That was one fluffy and adorable cat! Happy WOYWW from # 5.

A sweet rendering of your Fluffy. Our Molly the Cat is half Maine Coon. I've yet to get her colors right when I draw her. Her colors continually change.

Well done for using watercolours, not the easiest of mediums
