Manet 2014
Contest Directions: This Thursday, January 23, is the 182nd birthday of Edouard Manet. He originally wanted to join the French navy but failed the exams twice, and turned to art. So, in all honesty, we have to thank the French navy for giving the world the artist who became one of the founding fathers of impressionism and realism art movements. Manet trained in the studio of Thomas Couture - a hugely popular French history painter at the time. Before Manet developed his famous impressionist style, he spent two years in the Louvre where he trained and copied the old masters.
Photoshop any painting by Edouard Manet to include some modern elements in it. Think of product placements, celebrities, modern architecture, and even sci-fi features, etc. and show how Manet paintings would be different if he painted them in the modern days. Note: If you use any of Manet's paintings with "bare subjects" (e.g. "The Luncheon on the Grass" or "Olympia"), please cover them up with bikini before submitting.

        • TY It is a double OOB. I never tried it before, It has a front and back which I thought was rather novel.

        • Awesome work on the paint spills... good double out of bounds job
        • Excellent work. The mirrored table is ingenious
        • Outstanding, way to go Boss, Congrads on the Gold
        • Everytime I enter these type contests I can never get the tone or style of the artist correct. This reaches beyond just that... fantastic work!! Congratulations!
        • Thank you Bob, JS, HH, Luciano, Eric, Rajesh and NM. I hear you Jim, they are tough for me as well. If I can zero in on how to replicate the artist's technique or attack it with a unique twist I will try and enter one but otherwise I'm sort of intimidated. I was hoping Hobbit would enter and could see how she might handle an OOB Manet since she's been getting pretty expert at the whole OOB thing.
        • Congrats, Hitspinner! Added to favs. Thanks.
        • Glad you liked it. Thanks Pat, NM, PJ. Armatien and Doc.

        • You picked a great theme too. I would not have believed it could work so well if I had not seen it for myself. VWD!
  • Parrot Mix by Manet

    Parrot Mix by Manet
        • Wow, totally could be a contemporary ad!! Nicely done. That background wouldn't happen to be a texture from Photoimpressions would it? I have an identical pattern and even has the same overlap anomaly where the patterns connect. I handle that by reducing the opaqueness to about 70% and running another texture layer underneath of something like old paint. It works out pretty cool sometimes.
        • You can find this filter through Filters. To do so follow these directions: → Artistic → Apply Canvas....

          Edited to add that the above directions are for the free graphic tool Gimp that comes with Linux.
