Caturday Art - Boys on a Ladder.


Click on the pictures to enlarge.
If you think this picture looks familiar you are right.
I used the same photo for Caturday Art in July, but there was something about it that I was not happy with. I don't know what it is but I knew I wanted to do another version of it.

Here is the original photo.

And here is the picture I posted in July:
I keep trying to work out what displeases me about it. I think maybe it is the frame with the ladder and boards make too many straight lines. Any opinions? I am happier with today's version.

I do like the texture on the newer art better.

I like all 3 versions. Any photo with Eric and Flynn is perfect. XO

We like the texture-y one, too. But really, they're all fun!

speedyrabbit said...

We love the new one,it brings out the colours more,xx Speedy

Ann Adamus said...

Agree with Speedy ~ it's the colors in the new version ... they "pop" ~ and ones eyes go right to Eric and Flynn without being distracted by other elements (my artsy critique, ha ha!!!) ... and I think I also agree with you on the framing, that it creates a few too many lines/angles. Sigh, enuf said ... you'd think I was teaching a class. Giving you an A+, kiddo! HUGS!

I think the new one is better too, miss Jackie. The old one looks kind of metallic, with the frame, it has something, but not it! Maybe you have to use a different frame, something antiques, to make it look different...but, as miss Ellen already said, everything with the Angels inside is absolutely purrfect <3 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :) <3

The new version shows the ginger boys off so much better than the first version from July - and of course the colors - particularly the sky - are wonderful. This is a favorite photo of the boys!!

Hugs, Teddy

Marg said...

We like the first one also. The colors show up much better. You all have a great day.

Cleo said...

I think Speedy's right- the new one's more colorful, although they're both awesome. Happy weekend, y'all!!

Roby Sweet said...

The new one is brighter and more colorful. And the texture is great! :)

Bernadette said...

I love this photo! It's just a great photo of two cats doing cat things, body language, expressions, background. It's fun to play with photos, but that works best with a good photo to start with.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

WE think all three photos are terrific! What a wonderful image!

The Whiskeratti said...

This is really pawsome. Such handsome boys.

Gemini and Ichiro said...

We like the new one--it shows off colors much better. It's brighter.

Madi and Mom said...

I like the contrast of light/dark and the colors on the new one.

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Too cute! What precious little helpers.

Laila and Minchie said...

The colors really do "pop" and we love how it looks like a real painting with brush strokes able to be seen. Such a cute picture of the boys.

Mary McNeil said...

In the latest one the colors seem deeper and richer.

Brian said...

We love these! We always did enjoy those boys on the ladder!

Katie Isabella said...

I love today's version. I loved the first one too, because it as them--- and because I always have reassured their adventures. And them.

Katie Isabella said...

Right you are!

Cathy Keisha said...

I definitely LOVE the textures in today's version.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Ladders are so great to climb on.

Kari said...

The more vivid blue sky gives the picture more depth and sets off the boys fabulous ginger coats, just like a sunny day. I'll never forget when I saw Eric and Flynn for the first time on their blog. It was a photo of them on green grass and I thought that they were so beautiful and their furs couldn't possibly be that orange. But they were!

Mickey's Musings said...

We like this version too. It seems to have more body.Maybe because the sky is stronger and adds balance :)

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We like today's version best too, the colors seem more vivid which we LOVE. But they are all good.

Three Chatty Cats said...

The original photo is a great one. I like your July art, but I do think today's art is perfect! Love the blue.

meowmeowmans said...

I love them all. Anytime we get to see Eric and Flynn is wonderful. :)

I like how the colors pop in the new one!

Marie Symeou said...

They are both lovely, but the newer one is a bit better, and of course the original photo is beautiful too.

The Swiss Cats said...

Great photo ! Nice art today ! Purrs

John Bellen said...

I think the texture and colours in the older picture belnded too much together. There is a more three-dimensional look to the newer version. I do like it better than the old.

Deb Barnes said...

It's absolutely lovely! Thank you for sharing - purrs from the Zee/Zoey gang

Marv Marvelous said...

Jackie! Today's art piece is absolutely lovely. The color balances so well and the diagonals really make the images pop!
The play of color between the blue and orange really works well.
Gorgeous!

Herman TattleCat said...

You did a super job turning that photo into a work of art. Of course, with Eric and Flynn in the picture...it already was a work of art.

Fur Everywhere said...

I like all three photos, but I do like the edited one from today better than the one from July, simply because it is more colorful and lively. :) Great job on all three photos, though, they are all wonderful!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

It's hard to improve on those two handsome boys! Every time, I notice a different marking I hadn't before.

The Florida Furkids said...

Great photo and super artwork!

Thank you for the thoughtful and kind comment you made on our post about our Daddy. We know he's an Angel smiling down on us but we are heartbroken.

Bionic Basil said...

Beautiful art as always

Little Binky and Granny said...

We were thinking of you, miss Jackie, so I stopped by to bring some Pawkisses for a lovely day and hope that all is fine :) <3

Hilary said...

great shot of two great guys@

Erin the Cat said...

They are both great pictures from a wonderful and I mean that sincerely, original. Each has its own character but I think the newer on is the one for us, something to do with the colour of the sky and the balance, no pun intended given the boys balancing on the ladder.
Sending lots of love to you all

I like the second version, the one you did on the 7th. The focus, or center of the picture, is on the boys. They are so cute. I like it better. Hugs to you.

Caren Gittleman said...

How did I miss this? It is darling!!!

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

The revised art picture pleases my eyes a bit more , also...and its fun to see Eric and Flynn up to their catventures.
