Pierre-Auguste Renoir

I have always enjoyed studying the works of the great masters.  Some I like more than others, but all have an interesting story.

Below I have posted a small oil painting that I did of Renoir (1841-1919), and the original photo that I used to model it after.  Then, a sample of Renoir’s work.  I like Impressionistic paintings, some more than others, but Renoir’s work is consistently appealing to me.

Do you see any resemblance to Renoir’s work in my work?  Probably not.
