‘Ginge’ real life bagpuss! Watercolour

I am loving this festive break, I have painted every day, finished many paintings that had been sat waiting to be completed, and today I painted Ginge, my sisters Norwegian forest cat, who is truly a living bagpuss ( the kids tv pink tabby cat from the 70’s). Most attempts at painting cats, don’t go my way, but today I achieved two things with this painting, first, it’s a cat! Second I managed to create the loose free style, with an abstract feel, that I have tried and failed so often. Feeling happy, thanks to ginge giving the purr-fect pose!

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if itโ€™s hairy, I will be sure to try.
