A beautiful woman in a stylish scarlet gown poses in the middle of a grand arched hallway. "The subject should suggest decadence and elegance," states artist Daniela Bini. She portrays her model in a space inspired by The Hall of Diana in the royal palace, La Venaria Reale in Turin, Italy. "The painting was realized by working the background with acrylic colors and modeling paste to give a 3D effect to the decorative stucco. The figure in the foreground was painted in layers with oil colors, and to suggest the idea of decadence the crackle technique was used. Later, the surface was rubbed with bitumen."

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.
