Susan Faye is not just the "official neighborhood cat lady," she is also a watercolor artist and illustrator. In her etsy shop you can commission a original watercolor portrait of your favorite pet or person, as well as buy ACEO's and prints.
Susan was also kind enough to make a tutorial outlining her personal watercolor techniques , I hope you find it as fascinating as I did. I've tried to watercolor a few times out of curiosity, and have always ended up with a soggy mess. Susan makes it seem easy in this step-by-step tutorial, perhaps I've been inspired to try again! Now all I need to find are some cats . . .
