What is that cat hatching?

"What is that cat hatching?" Watercolor and ink, 5x7, on 140# cold press paper. Genre: fantasy.
Wanted to do some hatching--with pen and ink, that is. This is for Daily Paintworks "Picasso It" challenge, where you do something similar to a famous artist's style. Inspired by the art of Maurice Sendak and Arthur Rackham, with a teensy bit of Dr. Seuss thrown in.

Vintage Crockery

This is a small crockery study that I did earlier this year. I am endlessly fascinated by how some colors are so complimentary to others. Like this combination --- green and burnt sienna. I am attracted to this combination over and over. Maybe in 100 years I will come to understand why some colors compliment each other. Anyway, this one was fun!
