I begin my oil paintings with a colorful under painting followed by color blocking of the main shapes. I work layer by layer with each progressively becoming more defined. Some areas remain loose and soft while others are filled with detail and refinement. Watercolor paintings begin with a pencil drawing. Then I build up transparent layers of watercolors to create depth and keep luminosity. I reserve the right to make some artistic changes to create the right balance and harmony in the painting. This may include removing shrubbery, adding an extra accent flower or moving a cloud.
Each painting is unique and I do not stop until I am satisfied that it works together as a whole. My painting style is a mix between traditional and impressionistic. I love painting custom pieces that have special meaning for the collector. I stay in touch with you during the painting process.

"I’ve been working with Wendy to surprise my wedding couples with a custom painting of their bridal bouquets. Wendy takes my reference photos and paints beautiful pieces for my couples that are timeless and closely resemble the colors and flowers from the day. My couples have been so excited to receive these beautiful works of art!" -Laura Patrick Photography from Pennsylvania
"Giving Wendy Stoudt 5 stars! We have the most beautiful painting of a photograph of mountains we took near our Colorado home. It is HUGE - 84" x 48" and is stunning in our Texas home to remind us of our mountains. Love her style, attention to detail, and thoughtful communication throughout the process." --Tracy R. from Texas
