Candlelight in Venice Cafe

Candlelight in Venice Cafe, 12×12 Oil Painting by Winifred Whitfield

From time to time, over the past 4 years, I’ve viewed the reference photo I took and used for this painting. Often I felt it far too complex for me to paint – or at least, I didn’t want to work that hard. I did love the shapes of the chair backs and of course, the candlelight and the shadowy figures in the dark. Finally I decided I was ready and actually enjoyed the painting process very much. As always there is a change in painting content from that which existed in the photo but that’s to be expected. Hope you enjoy. Winifred

  1. I’m glad you ultimately enjoyed creating this lovely painting. I don’t know why but there’s symbolism in the glass containing the candles. For me this feel familiar. I like it. Thank you Winifred

    • Thank you so much Felicia. I think I just love candlelight. It sets a mood. Hope you are well. Stay safe. Winifred

  2. Lovely. I do love the candlelight and chair shapes, with the sense of various persons around the two diners. I can hear your voice when I read your descriptions.
