Cutie Pie

Cutie Pie 12×12 Oil Painting by Winifred Whitfield

I’m finding that when I allow young children to pose themselves, they often do a remarkable job. I love his adorable pose. There aren’t words to instruct him to do this. The fact is, I was shooting a wedding 18 years ago, when I saw him. I ask him if I could photographed him. I saved this image in a special folder for that long – the folder is titled “portraits to be painted”.

Famous and brilliant artist Richard Schmidt said that one should always place a spot of red somewhere in a painting. That’s why, I added the little red label looking thing on his sleeve. I didn’t want to make it too red but the color spot does make a difference. Most of the time – I forget. Hope you enjoy. Have a wonderful weekend. Winifred

  1. Love Love Love!!! Yes, the spot of red really does add something. I think it adds color perspective to the skin tones. He just glows. Great shot. You have a great instinct for portraits. So glad you shared this. Thanks so much!!!!
