Fine Art Paintings by Winifred



I Love to Paint! I digitally using Corel Painter software – Painter  2016.  I  enjoy the real media looks of Oil and acrylics, Watercolor and Pastels as well as Painters ability to allow me to paint with patterns and to create virtually anything else I can imagine. Most of these paintings were created from imagination, Some were inspired by artist Matisse, Modigliani, Renoir and Van Gogh.  (I have taught several artist Inspired classes at Digital Art Academy). A few used photos as visual references. All were a joy to paint.

Portrait of a Girl – 9×12 Oil on Gessoed Board 

I think portraits are the most challenging images to paint – even using a reference photo.  As you can see below, I create a very loose sketch initially and then work into the detail. I also always want to bring some level of artistic expression and creativity to the painting rather that to just to paint what I see. This can be challenging to envision, and a bit frightening to execute. I have to let go and take chances.  I consider it better to try and screw up than to play it safe.

I  always like this stage of a painting.
