I always loved the Impressionists, and though Renoir was never my favourite painter, I’ve always loved his ‘Luncheon of the Boating Party’.
So, when ‘The Burrow’ decided to pick a painting where each of us could pick a detail to write a story to, this was the first painting I thought of.
Outwardly, an idyllic scene with, happy people, if you look closely, you can almost sense the tension between the various characters.
Almost none of the people are looking directly at each other – every single one of them has a story to tell.
This month, we tell them all.
