Light Touch: Painting Madame de Bonnières by Pierre Auguste Renoir

Madame de Bonnières
Before Retouch
Madame de Bonnières
After Retouch

The art of Retouch is purely about re-interpretation of already great works of art; it allows the image to be re-imagined, evolved in ways that make it part of a living process of evolution/adaptation. With that said art of course is subjective and some may/may not like my interpretations but that’s the beauty of life and humanity; it’s more about the individuality/uniqueness we bring rather than following a specific pattern of conformity. However my red line is interfering in any way with the painter strokes as these need always be maintained in my opinion. Anyway I do hope that you like at least some of my works in art retouch because I do so enjoy it.

For retouch work I display the before (original)/after image for comparison while in my photo/art site the after image is sold. Also note that all art originals are duly licensed in the way they are used.

About the Painter (Wikipedia):

Pierre-Auguste Renoir known as Auguste Renoir , born in Limoges ( Haute-Vienne ) on February 25 , 1841 and died at the Domaine des Collettes in Cagnes-sur-Mer on December 3 , 1919, is one of the most famous French painters.

A full member of the Impressionist group , he evolved in the 1880s towards a more realistic style under the influence of Raphaël. He was a painter of nudes, portraits, landscapes, seascapes, still life’s and genre scenes. He was also pastellist , engraver, lithographer, sculptor and designer.

A figurative painter more interested in painting portraits and female nudes than in landscapes, he developed an original way of painting, which transcends his first influences ( Fragonard , Courbet , Monet, then the Italian fresco).
