"Chess is played worldwide, a sort of universal language that suggests intelligence and patience," says artist Daniela Bini. "For centuries, chess has been reserved to men’s world. But in the last decades, many women have also stood out. That’s why I decided to represent an elegant lady in a thoughtful attitude." A woman sits in a contemplative stance adorned with her royal blue ensemble. Her right hand covered in a sheer glove is propped on the side of her face, a gesture of deep thought. Utilizing a layered oil technique Daniela then added silver leaf in select squares in the background.

Terni, Italy

Italian artist Daniela Bini paints stylish and empowered portraits of women. "I am inspired by the female elegance from classic models to the fashion world," says Daniela, "and I render my subjects with an eye to the Florentine Renaissance portraits." Daniela was born in Terni in Umbria. For her eleventh birthday, her uncle gave her oil paints and an easel, which she describes as the most meaningful present of her life. After earning a degree in literature, she lived in England and then moved to Tuscany, where she received her first formal artistic education. Studying with teachers from the Fine Art Academy of Florence, Daniela learned the classic technique of velatura–the application of delicate layers of glazes. Today, she creates all of her paintings by starting with a chiaroscuro layer in burnt sienna to shape the figure, then continuing to add thin layers to obtain depth. Daniela works from a sunny home studio overlooking a valley and often listens to classical or folk music to be inspired and relaxed.
