Excellent & beautiful image Ken. Renoir? I'd say more reminiscent of the Dutch artist Vermeer ..... master of the single point light source in intimate domestic scenes.

Excelent & beautiful (Oh, already said that Wink )

Then it would be a wholly different image. The point is that the model engages/draws in the viewer.

Yes, I thought Vermeer instantly too - the subject, the lighting, the colours and even the ceramics all nod to Vermeer.

I can only suppose the influence is subconscious, Ken - but it's very strong.

That's not a bad thing in any way, in fact it's quite remarkable you've achieved such a striking evocation of Vermeer without consciously aiming for it. Wish I could do that...

In my youth I worked at an arts shop and did see a fine arts image with bowl and pitcher very similar to your delightful work here. In fact your background looks so like the oils on canvas version from the 1700s yet I can not recall the painter's name. A better memory than mine will inform us... An image to re-visit. TG

I wasn't thinking of any specific image when I said this reminded me of Vermeer - it's an overall thing in the lighting and subject. Obviously I don't know what painting it is you're remembering, but this is one of Vermeer's more famous pictures - ring any bells?

See here.
