Watercolor Pet Portraits -- Complete!

I've been wanting to hang some portraits of our two cats and Greyhound, so I decided to paint 'em. 

Freya

Freya is a weirdo who only likes food, and staring at me. (Seriously. Everytime I turn my head she is right there. Staring.) She also comes off as kind of....dumb, so that was an important aspect to capture. Poor Freya.

How's the likeness?

I asked Matt what shirt Freya would wear, and he said "A hot dog shirt. She loves hot dogs!" It turned out he was talking about the dog, which made a lot more sense.

Juno

Juno is fat, fluffy, and attached to Matt. She's actually not that fat, but her fur makes her look like a chub. She also looks eternally stern, but gives 0 craps about anything. This is the first portrait I did, and I was unhappy with the way some of it came out. Luckily I had two more chances to improve on them!

Juno is definitely Matt's cat, but the one time she does like to be near me is when I'm in the office. For some reason, dangling over the back of the computer chair is her favorite spot.

Petra

I think Petra's is my favorite portrait-- it was fun to paint her brindle markings and ridiculous Greyhound nose. (and Batman PJs are obviously the best!)

 I was going to hang them in the stairwell, but I like them so much that now I want to hang them somewhere more visible. Only problem is my walls are already covered with piles of art. I'll post an update once I've found some thrift store frames and a suitable hanging spot!
