The Making of a Masterpiece - 6

The Angel of the Battlefield
Clara Barton with Walt Whitman at Chatham, December 1862

By placing the scene outside, I was able to face southwest and not only get a view of the house but also capture the great vista of the 'Spires of Fredericksburg.' By setting the time of day at about sunset, the lighting became my best ally. - Mort Künstler
