black cat sunbathes

This is Sadie, who is beautiful and knows it.  Luckily for us all, she lives with watercolor artist Rachel Parker, who also knows it.  That passage of lit fur on the hip, and those cocked ears - perfection. I ran into this on Etsy at Rachel's shop, but her website (www.rachelsstudio.com ) has even more at which to marvel.
"I work primarily in watercolor because I love the sense of light this medium conveys. In all my paintings, I try to make light the central theme," Rachel states in her biography.  You'll see that's true. Meanwhile, I'm content to marvel at the sun glowing on that fur...how do you do that?
