The Friday Art Cat: Endre Penovac’s work


Endre Penovac’s work

I wanted to introduce you to this artist, Endre Penovac, who uses watercolour and ink on watercolour paper to create the most fantastic fluffy-looking cats.

The technique he uses is wet in wet – the paper is wetted first, then ink applied at just the correct time to enable it to spread out through the paper, creating patterns known as “runbacks”.  Watercolourists often use this to create trees and atmospheric effects.

I think I will be ordering one of his gorgeous calendars: The Artful Cat 2020 Wall Calendar.

Let me know what you think


I am an artist making work mostly of animals and people, specialising in oil painting and soft pastel.  Three cats live with me – Maine Coon Orlando, Bengal Pandora and black moggy Rio. 

If you’re interested in commissioning me for a portrait or purchasing any of my work, please contact me.

    I’ve always found wet on wet technique very difficult to control: my attempts would bleed all over the paper or lose the delicacy that Penovac shows so well in the fur of her cats. I really admire someone who can make watercolors look so easy to use (says me, who signed up for a watercolor class this summer :0)
