Hi Folks,
I’m finding it kinda weird trying to copy a classic painting and making the people come alive. But I love the dancers and the impressionistic flavor.

My dancer’s gown is the focal point, but actually the couple is the focus and everything else blurred. I had a canvas that was wide and made my version of Renoir’s work of art. Go for it folks; you can do it in shutdown! -Liz 😃

 :thankyou: NOLAN, & EVERYONE!  :)


Nolan, I thought maybe you wouldn’t like that I painted a Eurasian woman, but that was quite accidental and I ended up liking it. My husband thought I should copy the reference photo, but it was too late to change the tilt of her head and facial features!


 I really enjoyed this painting, especially doing the gown.  I pictured it moving and swaying as the couple danced!  Thanks for this project!

My effort in Acrylic. Thank you Nolan for your patient and very instructive lesson.
This 47 x 23 Cm and took me more than 10 hours

Well done Bill you painted the scene beautifully  :clap: :clap:

We were never trying to create a copy of his painting, rather learn from the techniques he used. Adding your own spin on the painting is awesome O0

 :thankyou: Teresa and Nolan. You talked in the video about how she was looking down and away, my thought was 'lack of breath freshener'  :thumbdown:

Liz, I love the way you added your own elements to this classic painting.  Well done  :clap:

Bill, great painting  :clap:  But I will never see this painting with the same eyes again... and keep wondering why he did not brush his teeth after eating garlic and smoking a cigar :whistle:

To both  :clap: :clap: :clap:
