Hi, my name is Winifred.

WW 2015

I am commissioned to provide the following services: photography, digital painting, and traditional oils. I also have a an online STORE where I sell tutorials, online workshops, and oil and digital paintings.  There is also free stuff. Just click the tab for STORE.

My passion is creating fine art and heirloom portraits – portraits intended to pass from generation to generation. These portraits possess a high level of emotional content and beauty. More than seeing an image, I want you to feel it. I want it to convey a story about you. Such are the images which remain with us. Such are the images we feel connected to.

When I paint digitally I use an electronic stylus on a WACOM tablet using Coral Painter software.  I teach workshops and have developed tutorials using this software. The process is much similar to painting, traditionally, except using different tools.

Traditional oils – well, you know what that is.  I love all three methods of creating beautiful images and whichever you desire, I am very happy to create your very special portrait. Please browse the Galleries for the style of photography or painting which interest you. Just to give you a little idea of my background – see below:

Sunflowers Tapestry Damask

Oil Painting – Sunflower Tapestry Damask, by Winifred

 

This painting adds a level of detail which I don’t usually include in my paintings.  For that reason I an including a few images which reflect the process.  Please let me know what you think?

Initial drawing with values created with oil paint.

Freehand painted background design and  first color layer.

 

Above, second color layer and beginning of table cloth.Above, third color layer and continuing to conceptualize table cloth. I rather liked the unpainted tapestry area but ultimately painted it. Below final painting after many adjustments to color and values with glazed oil painting techniques.
