I suppose everybody paints these beautiful animals at some point. I've done it twice in fifty odd years. On the left , way back when I was struggling with oils...and more recently in watercolour. The background came from various sources. I like ferns, I have a small 'fernery' in my garden, so there are a few ferns in the picture...plus a couple of house plants we had at the time. I wasn't happy with the fur texture on the watercolour, but otherwise thought it OK.
