Cat in a basket

This was too good a opportunity to miss, pity i didnt get all the basket in.
Also it will show Peter S that i am still a cat lover and that wherever she wants to sleep is fine by me ( she has claws and teeth you know )

looking forward to your art work as always

Palms
Heres one i have always wondered should i colour correct before posting ? or leave it up to the individual ?

Re: Cat in a basket

Interesting challenge. I can't resist a cat. Smudged a bit and then some.

Re: Cat in a basket

Very nice Janet, the basket has balanced out great and the colours give of a lovely feel to it, and you havent lost the attitude face either

Re: Cat in a basket

Hi Palms thanks for the cute kitty to work on.
Janet yours is really nice, I like the way you cropped it nice and close, it give it more emphasis on the cat.

here is mine, I tried to add some antique cracks but I think they need more work.

So that's what they serve in the Pubs by you. It used to be Chicken in a basket I'm sure, but I suppose tastes change

Re: Cat in a basket

Cool cat

My cat IGGY has several baskets, numerous beds, 2 condos and any number of cardboard boxes that have happened our way.

Where does he choose to park himself - if available - a shoe box that he basically only gets about half of his butt into.

Got the following in an e-mail today

Re: Cat in a basket

Combining Impressionist (James Brown) with Angled Brushstrokes and a tad of Eye Candy Jiggle, you get this (well, some cleaning smudges added; sat/color adjustments too). Here's the full rez version.
