ANOTHER new project:) Four seasons, beginning with winter. The subject for each season is a lovely young woman. I chose to paint this series digitally, while my oil portraits are drying between layers. Next post will feature a layer by layer separation and progression, so stand by.
I actually felt as though she was underwater Elena because of the movement of her hair.. another brilliant piece
Perhaps frozen in ice. Thanks Helen!
It’s a beautiful portrait. The shy look in the girl’s eye, her pose and the wild hair brings so much life to the picture. I am amazed about how detailed you are able to paint in Photoshop, must be quite a different feeling using a Wacom pen compared to a brush. The colour palette is wonderful.
Oh my, thank you. The tablet and stylus is just as sensitive as a pencil, and I am able to bring the image very close up to work. That’s an advantage for me, over traditional implements.
I like this picture, especially the loose, flowing treatment of the hair, and I look forward to the next stage(s).
Thank you Louis. Spring is next and should be fun to paint.
Just as breath-taking as I could have hoped! As I was waiting for the image to load, I “heard” the word: “Mucha” 😉
WOW! This is amazing and interesting… Made me excited… It would be so nice to follow what will be next… Thank you dear Elena, with my love, nia
As always, I thank you Nia. Spring will be next, after the progression tutorial of Ms. Winter.
she is beautiful. I am curious about the net across her face.
Thanks Carol. She’s a friend. The veil is just about another layer against the cold, although she IS winter, so simply a nod to those of us who have to wrap up:)
