Watercolour painting of a cat I met in Croatia

Hello! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

I recently painted this portrait of a cat I saw in Croatia.

It was a friendly cat and I took a photograph of her relaxing on the street.


Based on the photograph, I started painting…

First I did the underdrawing in pencil, and then I started painting shadows in dark blue watercolour.

By the way I’m currently running a summer sale on my Artfinder shop. Please feel free to browse 🙂




This is my new painting ‘Dolphins’. I love watching and painting dolphins, they make me feel free and relaxed.


Painting process:

I wet the paper with water first and painted the main dolphin roughly


After I painted the background, I sprinkled some salt to give some texture/effect.


After I finished painting the dolphins, I splashed some blue paints to add some energy and movement to the painting.
