Trevor and River

Or as I like to call it, “I’m Ribber, an’ dis is my brudder, Trebber.”

This one is a good example of combining photos to make a better painting. The original picture of the two kittens was adorable, with River’s paw around her littermate’s shoulder, but Trevor wasn’t looking at the camera. A little photoshop with a photo taken the same day, and Trev’s face is facing the right way. A little more photoshop to add Riv’s ear that was cropped from the first photo, and Trevor’s missing toes.

Painted in 2013. Acrylics on canvas board, 11×14.

Original reference photo, expanded a little to for better composition and the right proportions for the canvas.

A little photoshop to change Trevor’s face, add his toes, and add the rest of River’s ear that was cropped in the original photo.
