Note the size requirements for this month's challenge. It is not the easy resize that it has been in the past. It's going to take a little thought and perhaps artistic talent to fill the empty space. Have fun!

In looking at the "old masters", especially Vermeer's Milk Maid one of my favorite pieces that I even did in needlepoint years ago - so much of their style is built around light. Extreem darks and lights, lots of contrast, and with age comes texture. Solid brush strokes, heavy application of paint, no white spaces. Large blocks of color are also part of the style.

I found this a very big challenge this month. Thanks for the go, T. Paul

Well the Dutch Master Style idea goes to Doug. I located the photo and Doug suggested the idea. It's a team effort! :)

Hi Swampy,

I read your excellent synopsis of the Dutch Masters style after completing my entry. Wish I had read it before :dizzy:

I was never a fan of these paintings until a couple of years ago, when I went to an art museum in New York City and saw the original paintings. They are dark for my taste, but the realistic details in them, and the play of light is incredible.

"Just a warning that you need to resize your images to avoid being disqualified."

Can I replace my image and if so, how do I do it, or do i have to delete my message and re-submit with the resized image?

Gerry,

You can replace the entry.

Go to your original post, and click “Edit.”

In the next screen click “Go Advanced.”

In that screen, leave the “Do Not Delete Message” option checked and scroll to “Current Attachments.” Click “Remove” to delete your current entry.

When it has been removed, click on “Upload” and upload your revised entry.

Your original message will remain with the new file attached.
