Caturday Art

Hi Furrends!
I know that many of you are having loads and loads of heat! I would sure like some of that here. It has been cool here. Mom says it is comfortable for sleeping. Even though she has been thrashing about! I have been sleeping in my blue bed downstairs.

We thought we would like to so something artsy this week!

Here is one of Mom’s typical shots…kind of blurry (and has her feet in it because I was sitting on her. I was looking outside because Mom was trying to get me to look at the camera for Selfies and I did not want to look.

We loaded the blurry picture into Prizma and tried a couple of things. We did not think anything of it, until we downloaded the pictures off the camera tonight.

It looked really interesting…

First, we removed the background and duplicated the layer

WoodcutMarv2

And filled the background of the bottom copy with a nice avocado green

And we added tiger stripes…we copied and reversed them. And put that layer between the two Marvs.

Then we chose to exclude the stripes layer, that made it so the white was invisible and the green from the bottom shone through.

We then went in and added some green and yellow to Marv’s eyes, a little pink to his nose and white to his whiskers, plus some green in the fur around his eye brow.

Finally we added the frame

    That’s such cool artwork, Marv and Mom! The final result looks kind of like a woodblock cut print. 🙂

    It finally cooled off here a bit — today is supposed to only be about 8o degrees F!

    Hugs!

  7. This sounds totally complicated to do, Marv. It really turned out fabulously, and we like it oodles. We are actually having a couple of days of cooler weather, and we are so delighted. Mom worked in the yard for 4 1/2 hours…it was that nice! Hope you get the warmer weather you want soon.

  8. We love all the textures in this piece Marv! We also love your new header 🙂

    We have managed to find the sun every day this summer although it can be here for mere minutes some days!

    Truth be told, our Mama loves this cooler summer…she isn’t big on heat at all!
