Wallace and Tilly are the lucky kitties of Lisa, a friend from high school. She came to me with the idea to capture their spirits in a staged watercolor portrait of them. She sent me a few photos of each of them, which I married together for the final piece. It should be noted, however, that Wally (the grey, tiger-patterned cat in the back) has quite a bit more pudge than what you might see here. haha :)
At the time I painted these two I hadn't had much interaction with cats. Now that I have my own sassy calico, I understand their minds are always scheming for play, food or the perfect comfy spot to laze on. Cats are awesome.
