11" x 15", watercolour, 1998, private collection

Like the beagles in my previous post, this cat and dog couple were based on an image from a magazine, but, I assure you, my post after this (featuring two dogs) is based on my own photo reference.

This was done in 1998 as part of what I called Operation: Waterstorm, during which my goal was to paint one watercolour painting per week for the year (I ended up doing 63). During that year-long project I learned a lot about craftsmanship, dedication, drawing/painting techniques, composition, time management, and other things –and I would say that I'm still learning...always learning...
