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):
Jean-Jacques Hauer or Johann Jakob Hauer (10 March 1751 – 3 June 1829) was a German painter active in France. Hauer is known to have painted the portrait of Charlotte Corday before her execution.
The artist who drafted the portrait of Charlotte Corday in the tribunal was M. Hauer, painter and National Guard officer for the Theatre Francais. Being back in her cell, she asked the janitor to allow him to enter to finish his work. M. Hauer was let in. Charlotte thanked him of the interest he took of her fate and posed in front of him with serenity.
