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-Paul Prud’hon (April 4, 1758 – February 16, 1823) was a French Romantic painter and draughtsman best known for his allegorical paintings and portraits such as Madame Georges Anthony and Her Two Sons (1796). Notably, he painted a portrait of each of Napoleon’s two wives.

He was an early influence on Théodore Géricault.

Pierre-Paul Prud’hon was born in Cluny, Saône-et-Loire, France. He received his artistic training in the French provinces and went to Italy when he was twenty-six years old to continue his education. On his return to Paris, he found work decorating some private mansions. His work for wealthy Parisians led him to be held in high esteem at Napoleon’s court.
