AA Portraiture Article Emphasizes "Life and Light"

The most recent (November, 2002) American Artist magazine has a great article about portrait artist Henry Wingate. Mr. Wingate paints in a traditionalist manner and it really shows in his work:

"Whenever possible, he takes advantage of natural lighting, relying on north light in the studio. Nearly always working from life, Wingate rarely uses photographs because they fail to report the subtle shifts of color that he strives to capture."


"It's harder to work from life," he continues. "Having the client there puts pressure on the artist - but it makes all the difference."

It is a really good article and I highly recommend picking it up. I have contacted Mr. Wingate to inquire if we can post an image of one of his paintings here.

You can see his website at www.henrywingate.com.
