Watercolour Cat Art

Three watercolour cat paintings from my Cat Portraits Collection.

I am Bond, James Bond… This phrase was in my thoughts while I was painting the portrait of Boots the blue tuxedo cat, only in his version, which somehow like this: I am Boots, Puss in Boots! And I must say, I never saw before a cat, who can wear a blue tuxedo with a bow with such a class!

Southpaw is the title of the watercolor painting about Tillie the sweet calico cat, who prefers to bat her toys with the left paw.

And finally a triple cat portrait of three gorgeous furry friends, the orange Manx Oliver, Willow the grey long haired beauty, and Walter the Maine Coon!

Cat Paintings by Dora Hathazi Mendes

Cat Paintings from Cats of Karavella Atelier.

The first watercolor cat painting from this selection is about a gorgeous Tabby who has mesmerising eyes! The second is a short haired Caramel Oriental cat painting. Looks of Dexter can be deceiving! Do not be fooled by those gorgeous innocent green eyes, and sophisticated look, in reality Dexter is a typical, very naughty Oriental cat.  Finally a Ginger cat portrait, a custom order about a very special, beautiful orange tabby girl called Melon, who had severe eye infection as a kitten coming from a very sick litter, and were luckily rescued by Newburgh Scats Inc. She was later adopted by John, and she is living a very happy life since then, being the sweetest cat ever!

Friends Forever

A new group photo about my pet portraits, from Karavella Atelier.

Watercolor paintings about these lovely couples, Baby Olive with Stig, Chloe and Callie, Piglet with Watermelon.

I know probably Piglet Likes Watermelon is a unusual title but the couple on my painting is as extraordinaire as the title. These two loves each other. Piglet the adopted, senior English Bulldog lady, found her BFF in a black cat called Watermelon. They love to walk, play, watch television together, or just have a lazy nap next each other on sunny afternoons. Their cute names are free translation from Hungarian, Rofike for the dog which mean little pig, and Dinnye for watermelon, or Greek melon for the black cat.

The next cat painting titled You Are Mine , a watercolor painting about a Siamese kitten, Baby Olive, giving a big hug to her big tabby brother Stig.

And finally a custom order cat painting titled Friends Forever, remembering the lovely sisters Chloe and Callie who both passed the rainbow bridge, and reunited in Cat Paradise. The painting was made from a sweet photograph, where the sisters are enjoying each-others company, a nap together on a lazy afternoon.

Dreaming of Ginger

A new group photo about my watercolor cat portraits:

 

First of all a long haired calico cat painting about Misty, who has got the look.

A Blue Tuxedo cat painting, because I have a thing about blue cats. One is my selfish reason why I love to paint them so much, is to use my favourite indigo blue color. Practically adding some white, black and yellow for the eyes, you can paint a cat only with one color, which is a great exercise to make something as simple as possible, just based on shadows and lights and some contours. But there is another thing about Russian Blue Cats, above their gorgeous fur with blue hue, is their gaze, they suggest, they know it all, they rule the world, and they have lots of responsibility on their shoulder. This watercolour painting about a Russian Blue Cat with white chest, who is wearing her tuxedo with class, was inspired by a photograph of one of my dear follower on my Cats of Karavella Facebook Page.

Finally an orange tabby cat painting titled Dreaming of Ginger. Ginger in our dreams is a sign that you have achieved in your life that you feel secure and comfortable with what you have, and did so far. It can also warn you need to spice up your life with a little excitement. This two ginger tabby with beautiful markings are certainly very relaxed with their achievements, nothing can trouble their synchronised napping. This watercolor cat painting was inspired by the lovely photograph of Cynthia, about Gut Gut and Golden Boy.
