– Ralph Waldo Emerson
5″ x 7″ Watercolor on Ampersand Clayboard
I painted this little slumbering cat on clayboard, then scratched the hair into it. I really enjoyed this! The watercolor floats wonderfully on the surface for a bit, giving you a chance to blend and play.
The cat in the reference was actually sleeping on a pad of newsprint in an artist’s studio. That gives a new meaning to studio assistant.
