Cat Portrait Commission

 

Possibly my greatest work yet! I truly love how this watercolor pet portait painting turned out. 

The background was inspired by a comment from the pet owner, which my mind had snagged on and somehow grew into a full-blown scene.

"She's bigger than life," the owner had murmured offhandedly. But for whatever reason, it stuck with me. And when I was trying to think of what to do with the background, this scene (and only this scene) came to mind.

I'd also just returned from a trip to Alaska, where the mountain and trees are absurdly huge. So that must have been a big part of where my mind was at. Seriously, they are massive in a very in-your-face way and seeing them in person was a profound experience.
