I knew for sure that I wanted Burton to be the focus of the week, because Burton has one blue eye and one brown eye with a little smudge of blue at the bottom. So we got out a new collar with a hint of blue in it, and using a few "jackpot" treats, I did get Burton to pose on the yard bench. I knew the weathered patina of that bench could easily be converted to blue with a few digital brush strokes, and I have always thought Burton looked particularly good surrounded by blue.
I used an Indigo Matte brush on the bench to bring out the weathered blue a bit more.
I also had some images of our cat Matty, taken in the studio last year when I was trying out a new blue background paper. I had not processed all of the images, and though I might add one of him here.
Blue is one of my favorite colors to use with people, too. And you can't beat big puffy clouds in a very blue sky! This color theme was fun to think about, and it gave me a chance to pay more attention to Burton this week. I love being his dog Mom. On that note--Happy Mother's Day to all of the Moms of both furkids and skinkids! Enjoy your day!
