April Study - The Bathers by Pierre-Auguste Renoir - 1887

Oil on canvas, 46 x 67 in the Philadelphia Museum of Art

This month's study has been suggested by Rochelle Cathey as she stated that she liked its collage of classical human form with the impressionistic background. She also mentioned that it took Renoir 3 years to complete! Well...we have 3 weeks, let's see what we can do! Enjoy and have fun!

Our first entry this month is from Renate Arends from the Netherlands after working on it for 28 hours! A great job too!

  1. Wow this is what I call a challenge. Can't wait to start! I think I need the whole month for this one:)

  2. Yes, it WILL be a challenge Renate, I agree! For anyone interested, you can also paint a part of the painting...whatever you think you can do and still have fun as this is a challenging painting!

  3. Schitterend gedaan, en ook nog in aquarel! Dat vind ik erg moeilijk.
