Renoir 2014
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. Renoir is considered a celebrator of beauty, and especially feminine sensuality, and it has been said that "Renoir is the final representative of a tradition which runs directly from Rubens to Watteau". Renoir was born in a working-class French family. During his childhood years, Pierre-Auguste worked in a porcelain factory where his drawing talents led to him being chosen to paint designs on fine china. He then started painting hangings for overseas missionaries and decorations on fans before finally deciding to enroll in art school.
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. Note: If you use any of Renoir's paintings with "nude subjects", please cover them up with bikini before submitting.

  • Mommy's Alone Time by Renoir

        • 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 LOL
        • 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...
