Cat portrait in watercolour

Hello:)

This is my latest watercolour painting of my family’s cat, Ponyo.

Ponyo looking up

I painted this based on the photograph I took last year when I went back to Japan.

Processed with Moldiv

First, I painted the shadows in blue, then started painting her face.

Pastel portrait

Hello!

I have been painting portraits in pastels recently.

This is a portrait of my partner who is sketching me. He is also an artist so we sometimes draw each other.
