Contest Directions: February 25 is the birthday of a French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. He experienced his initial acclaim when six of his paintings hung in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874. Renoir's paintings are notable for their vibrant light and saturated color, most often focusing on people in intimate and candid compositions. The female nude was one of his primary subjects. In characteristic Impressionist style, Renoir suggested the details of a scene through freely brushed touches of color, so that his figures softly fuse with one another and their surroundings. To view Renoir's artwork Click This Link
Photoshop any painting by Pierre-Auguste Renoir to include some modern elements in it. Think of product placements, celebrities, modern architecture, and even sci-fi features, etc. and show how Renoir paintings would be different if he painted them in the modern days. Some fine examples are "Beach Closed" by LunaC, and "Amy the Bohemian" by Denlig. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Also Note: if you use any of Renoir's paintings with "nude subjects", please cover them up before submitting. Many thanks to Swashbuckle for the themepost. In an effort to allow more time for members to vote, an extra four hours has been added to this and future contest, with an ending vote time of 12:00 pm (CST)

        • This has got alot! I'm a big fan of this perfectly matched work and it's pleasing elements! Congrats on the Gold, DDog!
        • Super work dd. I like how the shading makes them look like they are going under the trees. Super filter work to blend. My Photoshop has issues with some paint filters so I did the best I could with limited time. Grats on Gold.

        • Have I got a story for you PS! I did another version of these cars as they were and they were a painting, unfortunately they weren’t impressionistic and as much as I liked it better, they just didn’t match. I wasn’t going to submit it for that reason. At the last minute I remembered that I had an old correl painter program in my old 2010 13” MacBook. The new problem was that MacBook has no battery, only plug in and half the screen doesn’t light up so I had to put my coat over my head and computer so I could barely see the dark screen side to use corel. I used impressionist brush but it obviously came out barely useable. In the end I wasn’t going to submit this one either and here it won! I AM SHOCKED!! Thanks everyone, shocked!
