At this stage I wanted to loosely identify the other elements of the watercolor painting, which were the foreground plants and the shape of the cat's figure. I randomly applied some clear water over the paper's surface that would contain the azaleas and jasmine plants. I then applied Sap Green, Winsor Green and Cadmium Orange watercolor paint over that portion of the paper, which produced a dry brush effect over the dry portions of the paper and a wet-in-wet effect in the damp areas. I was careful to leave some unpainted white paper where the azalea blooms would appear. I used Cadmium Orange mixed with Raw Umber to create the Cat's body because I wanted the strong orange color to be apparent when its image was complete. I also began working on the shadow details in the window area reserving a light spot that would create a glass highlight in the completed watercolor.
