I have been thinking for weeks, in my moments of distraction while researching for my book, that my cat Dahlia has the most luscious colors. Inspired by Pinterest (see my post here). http://pinterest.com/hortensia2012/calico-siamese-decorating/ I photographed images of my cat, and altered them in Photoshop to reduce them to their basic color profile, and then began gathering other images that complimented these colors. It has been great fun, and a relaxing way to spend a little time while my mind continues to ponder deeper historical quandries!
In my next post, I will illustrate the techniques I used to produce these results. See you then!
