Cat's Eye painted in watercolour by Paul Hopkinson for a paint along tutorial

The live paint-along study of a Cat’s Eye was something I decided to have a go at.  Something a bit different to offer everyone, a bit of fun and a bit of a personal challenge.  As the session went really well maybe I will do more….let me know whether you think this would be a good idea.

The study will teach you all about wet-in-wet washes and also how to apply detail.  I will show you how to create highlights within the eye and ways of using watercolour white. Finally, we will paint a suggestion of detailed fur, this will give the eye a setting and will make it look more life-like and realistic.

  • Do let me know how you got on and please send in your paintings for the student’s gallery.  Enjoy!

I would love to see your finished painting and share it within the student gallery.

And I would be very interested to know the difficulty rating you would give this project.

I do hope you have enjoyed this tutorial.  Until the next time, keep those brushes wet!  Paul
