Caturday Art Blog Hop


Red Christmas


Sisters Giulietta and Fiona are joining Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop today with a pencil sketch in red. They are in one of their usual nighttime sleeping spots on the bench in the upstair’s bathroom.

The photo was edited using only Picasa. After being cropped, I used the “I’m feeling lucky,” tool to remove an artificial gold color from the photo. Next I used the pencil sketch filter followed by adding the red color. I then applied the glow filter followed by the soften filter to blur the edges. The final step was adding the frame.

My favorite part of the photo is Fiona’s whiskers.
