      • Looks beautiful, but not really more 2014 than Renoir's time
      • Thanks Evirio. Actually the furnishing style is one of the most modern trends. Designers call it Shabby-Sheik. It is the art of taking old furniture and items and putting modern colors and treatments to them. Admittedly, the effect is a bit lost due to the painterly effect here but the style is the latest rage in Southern Ca. I 'm probably too far ahead of the 8 ball or too far behind
      • If you say so, well, you turned some modern stuff into old using your filter, what is, to me, risky, but pretty well done.
      • You are right. I appreciate your input. My mission was to get as close to Renoir as possible, just as a personal challenge. That is mainly the reason I picked Shabby-Sheik. It allowed me to stay a bit closer to the genuine feel. I don't do much of this master's matching styles though I have won a few of these types of contest. But I never expect to win. Too many others are much better. I consider these sort of contests as back to basic exercises, really vital to expanding skills. They force me out of my comfort zone. So win or loose I still win. Thanks mate, good luck to you if you entered.
      • Thank you, for your picture, which I find really delightful, and opened my mind to new ideas. I like how you created perspective here. It also reminds me Van Gogh's backgrounds, in a certain way.
      • Outstanding technique here. Though, indeed, if elements were more modern this would be even better.
      • Dunno how this could have ended at the 12th spot... Probably tight competition and the vintage/modern issue played part here...
