Inspiring Portraits of Women – a Collection of Images

mona-lisa.jpgThis week as part of our Portrait Deep Dive we’re going to look at portraits of ladies. So let’s start with one of the most famous, the Mona Lisa.

Darren wrote – What the Mona Lisa can teach us about taking great portraits

Painted almost 600 years ago she’s still as lovely today as she was then. Why does this painting work so well? What about it is so intriguing? Is it the lighting, or her sly smile? I like to think it’s because she’s an elegant woman of her time.

Old, young, trendy, casual, sporty, elegant, contemptuous, spirited, or shy; today we celebrate the ladies.

Let’s look at some inspiring portraits of women in this collection today:
