Beside the Pond

Girl By The Pond 12×16 Oil Painting by Winifred Whitfield

Hope everyone is having a great New Year. I came upon the reference image for this painting recently and and knew I wound enjoy painting such a classic and somber pose. I particularly loved the curve of of her neck and body. I did exaggerate and alter colors a bit.

Winifred’s Paintings of Italy

Among the most beautiful countries in the world.

The world may not have needed my landscapes and portrait creations  – but I created  them anyway.  I was there in 2008 and I am still selecting  and painting images from that trip.  I must say that the beautiful light Italy is known for hid itself during the days I was there. It was overcast and the light was very  flat for the most part. It is fortunate that we now have such excellent software to pull out image detail and fortunate again for me that I can paint. I am including here a collection of  mainly of paintings but a couple of my favorite enhanced photos as well. If you have not visited Italy, I hope these  paintings and photos encourage you to do so.
