SEVRES 2018
« Reply #11 on: December 10, 2018, 06:58:33 AM »
Sèvres 2018, a succès again, but some 950 pièces were displayed at the contest, a bit less than 2017, and the crowd was also less than last year, perhaps the effect of the 'gilets jaunes' in the streets and on the Champs Elysées ...

As far as flats:   92 flats exposed by 43 artists  (9% of the pièces) against 128 pièces and 51 artists in 2017 (-29%):
   Dioramas:   4 dios by 2 artists
   Creation:     2 flats by 2 artists
   Masters:    36 by 20 painters
   Cofirmed:  26 flats by 12 painters
   Novices:    24 flats by 7 painters

Awards:  9 Gold, 12 Silver and 14 Bronze - no award: 8 - no BoS

Jupiter Miniatures was present as vendor of flats ....


Some 130 pictures selected among 600 are under loading in the Show Gallery: http://www.intflatfigures.org/index.php?action=gallery;cat=230

message will be given when completed ....

Super !! Thank you Jean Paul !!!

Indeed the gallery was asked before the week-end, and I am collecting pictures from myself (350), and four other sources, you will be the fifth source; (source is always indicated in the description of each picture)!

I have manually transcribed all the painters and flats names transcribed with Alain Chatenay, from the organizer committee on Sunday afternoon in their battle room ! Thank you to alain and Pierre S. ! for yor wonderful help and friendship!  A list is then established at home, by category and whenever useful, detals or other view or zooming, a chronological n ID number is assigned, in sequence of loading.

Then I rename and sort all pictures by flat and I then select the best picture available for each flat,

Then I remaster it (get rid of dusts, spots, adjust background, contrast, alignment, contrast (Under/over exposed, adjust the size, smooth the background, remove the contest white tag, retify the view to a rectangular view frm the front, ....) then standardize the size in pixels (too large is not readable and longer to load, very small, not readable)

Then I prepare the comments (description, author, size, editor, engravor, award, source, editor's name of the flat for search function among painters, ...) 

Then I load then in the preset sequence, or, as you might have seen, I load the sequence blank, then add the pictures later as they are finalized, in their preset box ....

Now I will start the two weeks work, many hours, to get the best of these 600 pictures, in some 115-120 pictures as done for each other contests.  Please leave me one week more to start posting;

I will load them as general room/activity; creation/ masters / confirmed / novice levels / vendors / clubs (if pictures are available)
I can't do this when not attending myself as I don't have pictures of all flats, ignore the levels and names unless already posted, and there are less pictures ...

Next show will be Ransart, but some show in Spain in December might be open when getting access to some pictures.
