"I am a true admirer of the photographer Bettina Rheims," shares artist Daniela Bini. "The subject of this painting is inspired by a famous photo of hers. A few changes were made about the expression and the hair of the model. I then added the rain effect and puddles. Colors are more flamboyant and contrasting than Bettina’s figure to give an impression of a dark urban context." Daniela rendered the background with acrylic paint, modeling quartz paste, and silver leaf to add life to the depiction of water.

Daniela Bini

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.
