Luncheon at the Boating Party My Version

I like the tempo of this painting Dorothy, as it expresses the people enjoying themselves and the colours are illustrious and vibrant. I admire the way you painted all the figures in their various postures, gestures and happy conversations as they gather together in harmoniously! Excellent Acrylic expressionist composition!

I understand completely what you are saying Dorothy as I have used copying the masters as a method of learning. I don’t think I achieved this level of skill I’m my efforts you must be really pleased with this excellent acrylic painting.

Bravo Dorothy. One of my favorite paintings. Way back I tried copying a couple of Renoir's paintings, having the quaint idea that they might be easier than some other artist's. They weren't. I'm not brave enough to attempt this one. Great job.

That's a great version of the masterpiece Dorothy, such a lot of work but well worth it.

Excellent work on both Dorothy

I did it my way for my own pleasure. It is 16 x 20 inch on canvas in acrylic
