Artist's Description

My mum’s cat ‘Bitty’ – she’s a piece of work!

Description for DAC:

Base image of the blue, cloudy sky with the tree branches silhouetted is duplicated in the Layers Palette (Photoshop CS3 Extended) and then Multiplied to make it darker like night time. I then opened my Moon image and placed it between the background layer and the multiplied copy layer so it appears to be on the other side of the branch sihouette, then I chose Screen as the blending option. I then opened the cat image and placed her in the composition and enlarged her slightly. I added a new blank layer and painted the yellow parts of her eyes using a soft, medium brush, and the yellow color at 48% so it is still fairly transparent, as the original cat photo doesn’t really show off her multi-colored eyes that well. I then realized I needed a fence or something to ‘sit’ Bitty the kitty on, so I opened a wood texture image I had, reduced it in size to fit the width of the image, and then copied it and then distorted the copy using Distort in the Edit/Transform palette so that it fit the other layer giving a dimensional fence for Bitty to look like she is sitting on. I merged the two fence layersI then reduced the color saturation of that layer so that it blends in a bit better. That’s it. My homage to a finicky, lovely kittythat my mum has spoiled rotten ;-)
