Cats in watercolour and ink

I've been getting very wrapped up in my own life and own head lately, and am going to take just a little longer to put down all of the things that I've been wanting to share, but haven't had the guts to do so yet. In the meantime, let this be a reminder of the beauty and talent we have in this world - no matter how dark and oppressive it may seem at times. 

Endre Penovรกc is a Serbian painter and independent artist who has been exhibiting his work since 1981 - and for good reason. He's renowned for his watercolour cats, which caught my eye not only because of the subject matter (crazy cat lady, here!), but also because of Endre's technique. As a result of him diluting the ink and watercolour pigments with water, the paint spreads across the page on its own. The result is a ghostly quality and images that seem to fade into the paper, which suits his favourite subject to a tee: black cats. As someone who has never been able to master watercolours, I have huge respect for this inspiring painter and would love to own one of his artworks one day. What do you think?
