Hi all
I found this painting in my attic & would like some help please.
I know it's by Whitman but after searching on Google I can't find the exact painting, very similar but not the same. Its oil on canvas.
Is it fake? Worth anything?
Many thanks for any help/info

It looks like a genuine oil painting as the thicker brush strokes look raised where as a print would be flat. I dont know the artist Whitman but his/her style is typical of that Bob Ross look. A technique that has been copied and used extensively by many. Theres no reason to doubt that its by Whitman, as I dont think Whitman is well known enough to warrant people faking his/her work. A close up of the brush strokes with the light shone from the sides and a picture of the back would give a better idea if it is oil or print
