 You can't help but smile when you look a this one!

Bright Eyes VI - Original Watercolor Painting
Click on the detail pic at left to enlarge. To say that this painting depicts a happy cat is an understatement!  Janet writes,  "Years ago a veterinarian told me that cats have many more muscles in their faces than dogs do--and so they are capable of many more subtle facial expressions than dogs. I don't know how true that is, but I can say that cats are more difficult to paint than dogs! When I am painting, one slight paint stroke here or there can significantly change the appearance of a cat's expression."

Bright Eyes V - Orange and White Tabby Cat
Bright Eyes V - Original Watercolor Painting
While all cats' eyes are beautiful, Janet Wissmann is partial to the green ones. In this painting the artist concentrated on using only two basic colors: orange and green. Paintings that use a very limited palette such as this can be quite compelling. Janet describes how this painting was done:  "In this painting I did use a bit of white for the highlight in the eyes and for a few of the cat's left whiskers, but believe it or not the cat's right whiskers are simply the white of the watercolor paper. (Click on image at right to see extreme details.) I managed this by using a bit of liquid mask before painting. This allowed me to keep the background plane intact, allowing the suspended paint particles do their marvelous melding behind the whiskers as only transparent watercolors can do. After the paint was dry, I removed the mask. Then, near the end, I toned down the comparatively bright white a bit by placing a dilute wash or two over the whiskers."
Framing of this original painting - Matting shown on this Bright Eyes V original watercolor is archival Cinnamon suede over Moka suede, with a real feather. Image size approximately 4.5x7.5 inches.  If you don't like this matting, I'll be happy to cut new mats, in a plain off-white double mat, for no charge (as long as I still have the materials here).  I will be delighted to give you two full sets of my Bright Eyes prints, or 10 prints of this Bright Eyes image, as a free gift --so you can give to your family and friends! $450.00 matted. Please call to purchase this original using a check or your credit card via paypal.

Original Watercolor Painting for Sale - Bright Eyes II -Siamese Cat Bright Eyes II -Original Watercolor Painting - A gorgeous blue-eyed Seal Point Siamese (of the old type, ca. 1970) graces this original watercolor cat painting. Surrounded by real feathers and matted with Moka and Cinnamon suede rag mats, Bright Eyes II displays in a very rich manner the tawny and chocolate browns prevalent in this breed of cat. The Seal Point's velvety ecru fur has an added bluish or lilac component as well. Janet writes, "This color is difficult to record on film, so I had to rely on my memory when painting this original watercolor. A touch of cerulean blue in the background helps to lead the viewer's eye in the direction of the cat's own intense gaze."
