Feline pets might be adored in very kitschy ways on the Internet, but that doesn't mean they can't be a source of artistic inspiration as proven in this series of watercolor cat paintings. Created by Serbian artist Endre Penovác, the watercolor cat paintings are utterly mesmerizing. Dark and ghostly, they capture the texture of their fur beautifully.

Yet more than that, the watercolor cat paintings also capture the often ominous feeling associated specifically with black cats. Soft and somber, the artworks are full of moody emotions. To achieve this striking feeling and effect, This is Colossal writes, "Penovác heavily dilutes the pigments with water creating small rivers and splotches that perfectly mimic the texture of fur."
