This is stunning, Marilyn.Love that fur texture, especially how you have caught the courser fur under the chin.

Many thanks Dawn for your lovely comment. I’m new to this site so hope I am responding correctly. Please let me know if not.

This is Beyond Spectacular Work!

Thank you Skylar for your lovely comment!

These are three fantastic watercolours Marilyn, beautifully done 😁

I think your work is absolutely stunning. I'm amazed it's you use masking for your whites?

Hi Lewis - No I don’t use masking tape for very thin whiskers, I either use white gouache and a size 0 brush or a Mitsubishi Signa white gel pen. As I am new to this site please could you let me know if you have received this comment so that I can ensure I’m responding correctly to people’s comments?

Thanks for the info, Marilyn. Clearly, you've responded correctly. I'm new to the site, too. This is day one for me, so I'm blundering about finding my way.

Wonderful painting of this gorgeous cat. Great expression. They're a most attractive cat breed.

You're responding just fine Marilyn. While you receive an auto alert each time someone comments on your work, the person commenting doesn't get alerted to your reply. It is up to him/her to open up your painting to see your reply, if they wish. It is very nice that you do reply, as some people don't bother. A lot do of course.
