Watercolor Wednesday

This is creature week.  They are sullen and unnerving, sporting giant ears.  I have no idea why.

I tweaked digitally, just a little bit.

  1. Nice work the sullen face is really strong. D

  2. I love your creativity and your mention that you did not know why the big ears. I really enjoy that unpredictable aspect of artistic expression.

  3. Elena that top creature is full of emotion – sad, thoughtful and utterly brilliant..

  4. There is an artist in Houston, Kelley Devine, who comes to mine when I look at your work. She paints portraits of women with animal horns added.

  5. Brilliant! The dancing goblin (is it a goblin? i see a goblin) is wonderful! Lost in the moment. Glad i found your blog today!

  6. The first one is my favorite. It feels a little more solid. The colors are great on both of them.

    Elena these are so fantastic. The expressions are so powerful. I love how you’re creating something dreamlike and light, but at the same time intense and strong..captivating..

  8. Wonderful work. Alice in Wonderland meets The Hobbit by way of a 60’s vibe. Very well done. 🙂

  9. There are beautiful paintings! I love colors too!
    Have a wonderful day and a splendid weekend, dear Elena!

  10. Those colors…I really love how you use so many different ones. Gorgeous.

  11. you are a magician
    I hope you get published.

  12. I love the mingling of colors. These creatures are likely very wise and are inclined to watch and listen rather than speak. Maybe they are intense and focused in their listening, not sullen.

  13. 😦 … what’s going through the mind of the first creature? Looks burdened with troubles. I want to put my arm around it and offer a listening ear.

  14. It would be an interesting experiment to see the face on the first painting on a more human-like form as well. Would it seem more or less haunting?

    That is a gripping stare on the first one! Yes, a story is behind that “look” for sure. The second one so oblivious looking, ears flopping in the wind, delightful, carefree, both lovely and great colors as always elena!

  16. These are strange and very gorgeous paintings. The eyes of the first are just amazing 🙂

  17. The first is reminiscent of the movie ‘Avatar’ for some reason…!?!
    They are just lovely….!

  18. These are lovely. The first one with it’s defiant sadness is captivating. But they’re both great.

  20. The color and emotion in the first piece is amazing!

  21. Wow, the first image is awesome! Congratulations – great creativity, really a fantastic piece.

  22. Thanks much Karen. I love your scenario.

    These images are captivating and to me represent the limitless capacities of our artistic minds!

  25. I see vestiges of Gollum, Yoda, & Bottom. Pieces of human nature in caricature. Very imaginative!

  26. Wow! The second is cool and mischievous, but that first one is too cool! What a face! Fantastical!

  27. What a reality even though she was only an imaginary figure.
    Shape, details, and colorings = show the Character and implied story or
    context —— all in one integrated world !
    It’s your perfect imagination and the skill to convert it as a drawing !!!

  28. Like the playfulness of the second one.

  29. I particularly like the first – the intense penetration of the stare, the effectiveness of the colour choice. But they’re certainly unnerving – not the sort of creatures to have on your mind at bed time!

  30. The better to hear you with!

  31. I loved them too… Should be a story of them, 🙂 Thanks and Love, nia

  32. Oh Elena! They are Beautiful and intense.
    Perhaps they are earth listeners – and they are saddened by what they hear…

    That first one – those browns and blues, and that gaze – Incredible, I can’t stop looking.
