  2. Very very nice portrait, dear Elena! You are very talented! Congratulations!
    Big hugs with much love, Stefania! 🙂

  3. wonderful fluid handling of paint, I love the yellow drip!

  4. Beautiful, Elena. I see a face near her right shoulder, not people dancing…

  5. Stunning painting 🙂 You inspire me to try this – I’m usually too intimidated to even attempt painting a portrait. Being able to erase is the only thing that saves me at all when it comes to faces…lol

    • Allyson, all I do is try. About half of these experiments wind up as collage fodder. I say take the risks-all you have to lose is a little time and paper (which can motivate something new too). Thanks for your kind words:)

  6. Gorgeous capture of expression Elena!

  7. I love Watercolo(u)r Wednesdays! This is gorgeous, Elena.
    You paint so loosely but create the most incredible details.

  8. What a beautiful, thoughtful portrait! And wonderful use of colour.

  9. i like very much your choice of colours, it ‘s very vivid. Very beautiful 🙂

    She’s amazing! I even see two people dancing and playing music over her right shoulder!

  11. Very beautiful, great work!

  12. I love this Elena. Fabulous! 🙂

  13. I don’t know anything about watercolor, but I know that one day I’d love to dabble in it. But what I really wanted to say is that I love how the color drips on her forehead. Just excellent!

    • Thank you! I don’t know too much about watercolor either, so for the past several months I’ve been experimenting. I’ve found I’m very fond of drips:)

  14. I love when you use so much color! My eyes get so happy. It’s beautiful.

    Very, very lovely. I like the drippiness.

  18. Ah, for the love of innocence. This is a most remarkable piece – filled with emotion. Simply wonderful painting Elena!

  19. What is she thinking about? Looking at? She is so focused. Lovely color palette.

  20. Wow, it needs so much practice and talent to be so good!


  21. It’s lovely Elena. Dianne must be pleased 🙂
    As always, I love your technique!

  22. I love the naturalness of this portrait inviting me to wonder what is passing through the model’s mind.

  23. I love the use of colour in this one, Elena. Beautiful.

  24. beautiful shy smile I loved it. You did as always so nice painting. Thank you, love, nia

  25. Ok..I’m going to ask the question! Who is Dianne?
    Beautiful portrait too 🙂

  26. The eyes in this are beautifully shaped, Elena. I like that her features are not perfectly square on too.. The subtle difference between the left side of her face and the right is most effective and the body slightly turned. Great job!

  27. That’s interesting, eyes usually tell the story in a portrait, but here you’ve captured a lovely essence – almost like a Mona Lisa, with an inner secret…

  28. Beautiful! Such a lovely expression.

  29. She is beautiful! love the color..

  30. Beautiful work!

  31. Like she could look up and smile at any moment 🙂
