Akiko Watanabe - Mr. Hercule - Merit Award


Akiko Watanabe – Mr. Hercule

"The direct stare of this cat really catches your eye. It is so detailed and beautifully executed. Notice the black whiskers on the green, and the white highlighting the black whiskers against the black fur.  Also, notice the slightly white outline of the eye and the wonderful reflections in the eyes – Nice!. The tondo format is perfect for this cat portrait. You can see so much color and detail in the fur of this “black” cat." ~Jenine Culligan, Juror

"This is a truly outstanding portrait of this cat, not just any cat, but this one. You can see the personality in his eyes." ~ Susan Tschantz, Renaissance artist.
