Le Chat Gris, animal art by Amy Crook

Le Chat Gris, 8″x8″ watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

A third Animal Spirit joins the fox and bunny with this lovely cat.

There’s a saying that all cats are grey in the dark, and this beautiful moggy glows pearly white and grey in the light of a golden harvest moon. The gold is reflected in the cat’s eyes, which hold a little of their own shine.

Bring beauty and whimsy into your home and adopt this grey kitty — you’ll never have to feed it!

Above, you can really see the sunlight hitting the pearlescent white of the cat’s intricate patterning. Below, they’re elegantly framed and just waiting for the right wall, shelf, or nook.

Blue Bunny

Blue Bunny by Amy Crook

Blue Bunny, 12″x9″ watercolor, interference watercolor, and Primatek watercolor on Strathmore watercolor paper

The beautiful Garnet Fox has a friend in this Blue Bunny.

Blue Apatite Genuine forms a lovely swirling midnight hue for the rabbit’s base color, with shimmering interference blue atop, and a glow of bronzite and quinacridone gold surrounding this lovely bounding bunny.

Larger than a lot of my work, this painting would be perfect in place of pride, matted into a silver frame in your home.

Above, you can really see the shine of the interference blue paint, which looks like moonlight atop the midnight blue. Below, this big bunny is in a frame, waiting to bring his shining light to your home.

Garnet Fox

Garnet Fox, original art by Amy Crook

Garnet Fox, 8″x8″ watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

The final piece in this month’s gallery is last little bit of shine brilliance, with interference red providing the delicate details on this fox’s garnet fur.

A whimsical, graphical style is paired with intricate pattern work for a gorgeous piece of art that would brighten any home or office.

Like any trickster fox, this one only shows its best side when it wants to, and in this case the lovely red shines against the rich garnet paint of its fur only when turned into the light.

Above, you can see the way the paint on the designs catches the light and shines in metallic red on the fox’s garnet coat. Below, she’s waiting in a frame, just waiting for the right foxhole to adorn.
