This is my attempt to do Nolan's 'Raindrops on window' class in water color.  There are some things I would probably do differently - maybe go a little darker and not have the droplets all the same size - but all in all, I am pleased, and I have satisfied myself that it can be done fairly easily but patiently.  I have a painting I am working on with a cat in the window, so this class, even though in oil, was a great lesson and a big help.

Thank you Val, thank you Dennis, and thank you Kathy.  This was a fun piece to do.  I can't wait to see how my other raindrop painting goes.

The raindrops look real! This has come out well!

I think I'm finished with my watercolor cat in the window with raindrops.  Please feel free to critique as I want to enter it into a show, and you all are always so helpful.

Thank you Dennis.  I'll have to admit that I was ready to come in out of the rain.  :)
Thank you Kathy.  Fingers crossed - it is a juried show.
