|The Playing Claude Renoir by Pierre-Auguste Renoir|
Pierre-Auguste Renoir (25 February 1841 – 3 December 1919) was a French artist who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. Renoir is perhaps the best-loved of all the Impressionists, for his subjects---pretty children, flowers, beautiful scenes, above all lovely women---have instant appeal, and he communicated the joy he took in them with great directness.
The additional criteria for this challenge was:-
Ribbon = 1 point
A photo of a child or child playing = 2 points
Paint your own background = 3 points
I've used photos of my son and his friend playing in the pool at a local resort last summer holidays. They had such a great time, going up and down the water slide and in and out of the various levels of the pool complex. I've painted the background of my layout with white paint and used a thin ribbon across the strip of patterned paper. All criteria covered.
