Shirley Bond - "Cat on Chair"

Cat on Chair
Artist Shirley Bond
Medium  Watercolor on watercolor paper 7" X 9"

A difficult study. All the patterns were very difficult to do even though I first did a small beginning sketch to try to figure the pattern out. 
I loved the colors of the painting  I found the bottom carpet to be to overwhelming to the composition so I exchanged it for a cat on the try and center the composition.
After all in my house there always seems to be a cat on the chair!!
