Thanks

Here are some progress pics for the cats!
Did this one a little different by leaving the middle cat for last. Normally i would have gone in order from left to right, but i wanted to get the two in the same photo done before i started on the white one.

That is just adorable. I love cats. Lilruffian, did you use white watercolor paint for the whiskers? and some of the fur? Do you use Goache or reg. watercolor?

Did you know that you can use an exacto blade to carefully scrape of small amounts of dried paint to get the pure white of the paper back? Works well for hair/fun accents and such. Works best with a curved edge exacto type blade so that you don't catch an edge and tear the paper. ONly works on paper that is strong enought to take it, such as 140lb or more.

^^ Not watercolor, just watered down acrylic (practically watercolor lol). I've heard about being able to scrape the paint off, though i've never tried it. My luck i'd rip the paper and have to start all over again! lol

^Thank you Idlepastures! And no, it's not too late if you're interested. My site address is www.wildestheartart.webs.com if you'd like to go check it out. Feel free to PM or email ;)
