Woman of Ollantaytambo

"Woman of Ollantaytambo", 16 x 12 In, Oil on Panel
This is from a photo of a Peruvian woman from a trip I took a few years ago to Peru and wonderfully, to Machu Picchu. I never painted it before because though the figure is interesting, there was little drama in the photo. But because the basis of this series is the practice of figure proportion, it gave me a reason to paint it. Proportion of figures obviously varies depending on height and I tried to take that into consideration.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. I love these women! When I lived in Bolivia, 30 years ago, I vacationed in Peru. I so want to go back!

  2. Pam--thanks so much for your comment! Maybe we can go on an OAT trip together sometime with our significant others. These trips are such wonderful times to be inspired by the people in distant places to continue our art.
