Watercolour always shows off the colouring at its best in cats, especially when the fur is so varied. Cats eyes are great to paint too, and is often what makes a portrait some alive at the end.
A drawing of a Border Collie with graphite pencil. He has one blue and one brown eye which is still hopefully apparent in this graphite drawing.
A watercolour portrait of a German Shepherd called Azeka. Azeka was rescue dog and sadly passed away in 2009. Here you can read a more about Azeka and the good work of German Shepherd Rescue Scotland.
A quick pen and ink sketch I drew of an old German brewery in the Bavarian town of Berchtesgaden. Pen and ink is a nice combination similar to watercolour in that the ink bleeds by adding water to the paper. I added a bit of texture in places using a soft 8B graphite pencil.
