It's a holiday tradition at Affinity Express to recreate a well-known piece of art using embroidery digitizing. This year, the pressure was heightened since last year's design just won us two awards: the Stitches Golden Needle awards for Design of the Year, Technical, Corporate and Design of the Year, Artistic, Corporate.
The subject we chose this year was a Renoir painting. And regardless of whether we win an award, I think we can be proud of this year's design as well! What do you think?
We also considered another design, a recreation of a Pissarro painting (Winter at Montfoucault With Snow). It was a difficult choice, but ultimately the interpretation of the Renoir painting above seemed more gorgeous and the detailing more intricate. And while the scene below is of winter, the red in the design above has a lovely holiday feel to it.
Do you think we made the right decision? Do you have a suggestion for next year's design? Hit the comments section!
