Jackson the cat

Jackson the cat watercolor painting by Maura SatchellI did this watercolor for a colleague at work. This is Jackson, her cat and he was a stray she brought home one day after getting beyond the grief over the loss of her previous cat.

I find watercolor a serious challenge and that it requires a far gentler touch than acrylics or oils which, as my long ago teacher Miss Hazel used to say you can “just slap some more paint over it” and cover up the flaws.  The thing is, with their gentler touch, translucent qualities, I love watercolors.

What’s your preference?

PS:  If you really love this, you can by it in various forms, including print, canvas, notecard, even as a throw pillow here at this link.

About Maura Satchell, contemporary artist and writer

Contemporary artist, seeker, writer. Curious to a fault. I let the fates take me where they will and never say no to an adventure. That has led me on some heart-stirring journeys and impetuous choices. I regret nothing.
