Haunting Images of Ghostly Watercolor Cats

Serbian artist Endre Penovac created this enchantingly eerie set of watercolor paintings depicting black cats. Using stark black paint and ink, theartist dilutes the pigments with water creating splotches that perfectly mimic the texture of fur. While the watercolor cats are certinly beautiful, the bleeding edges and dark colours create a ghostly, haunting effect.

In an interview with BoredPanda, Endre explained that he took inspiration from his own pet. “To say something new and magical about somebody or something – even in art – is only possible if we know it. Thus it is natural that I draw inspiration from my surroundings, for example one of my main characters, ‘Boszi’ (Witch in English) – our black cat”
