  1. My that hand is ‘large’. It’s a reality shaper for sure πŸ™‚

  6. Sweepingly gorgeous!

  7. Your watercolors are incredible…so evocative and expressive. Love your work!

  8. Very beautiful picture, dear Elena! I called it “bird protector!”
    I love the colors!
    Thank you for sharing!
    Big hugs with much love, Stefania! πŸ™‚

    love the colors and the flow, I can hear the wings flapping.

  10. Its the bird lady of Fantasia! πŸ™‚

  11. this is different and colorful πŸ™‚

  12. I see a delightful young maiden whose progress is being impeded by birds of ill omen.

  13. Just awesome! This is stunning to me.

  14. amazing colors! & I love the way the bird on the left looks as if it just attached from her spine

  15. The fairy and the birds are stunning. Have you been inspired by your lovely little Red Cardinals?

  16. Very dynamic like dance. πŸ™‚

  17. i love the face, and the whole pose…just about to turn around as if we’ve interrupted something. and the bird looking so pleased with itself. dreamy.

  18. Wonderful movement. I sense being on the brink of action, flight perhaps. A moment of anticipation.

  19. Awesome Elena! πŸ™‚

  20. Wow Elena, tremendous work on this piece! The use of lines and flow is fantastic, the emotion comes across 10-fold. It’s a vision of a nighttime wanderer meandering through the woods, whose only connection to life is with the comfort of bird friends – what are they seeking together?

  21. Beautiful work as usual…It’s got a magical/fantasy feel to me…

    The realm of the phantasmagorical, where the red-blue chiffon of time beckons the uninitiated into a sort of cosmic daydream…

  23. Hi Elena, a huge thanks for your “following” and your “like”. It is so meaningful to me as I love your use of watercolors and the softness of your photo work. Have an artful day, Marian.

  24. Great work Elena❀I really love the way you are colouring ❀

  25. It is kinda spooky…but not in a bad way..I think…
    I still think it’s an awesome work though πŸ˜€

  26. Love the action in this one, Elena! It’s really quite violent. And I love the expressions on the character and birds’ faces. Great! πŸ™‚

  27. Great use of color.

  28. I didn’t care for this one at first. The color scheme is a little less dynamic than I’ve come to expect from you, and the main figure’s posture seems… off (to me). But with a little further study, there’s a great deal of very satisfying motion in the sweep of the dress, the sky, and the birds. There’s also some very interesting relationships between the subjects. AND the rendering of the hand on the right and the bird on the left are exquisite. I’ve come around!

    • Thanks Gabriel:) I’m not concerned with “correct” in these watercolor sketches. They serve other purposes.

      • I figured. It stands as a testament to your talents that your sketches come so close to being ‘correct’ without even trying. Just let me know if my comments step out-of-line. (it probably says more about me, and my inability to just let go and paint freely. hmmm…)

      • Not to worry! Just give it a go. You don’t have to show anyone;) A pretty big percentage of these w/c’s wind up as collage foder;)

  29. Elena…I should ask you something…maybe this wouldn’t be the right place to ask….
    Would there be any way I could use one of your fairies as a tattoo? I’ve been looking for a perfect fairy (having one on my back already), I need more. Your fairies speak to me. The colors, the stokes, the breathiness of them. I love them. πŸ™‚

  30. Great work!!! πŸ™‚

  31. Ooooo….

  32. so impressive and beautiful dear Elena, Thanks and Love, nia

  33. i really like it..her? i thought it was a painting, well, it IS a painting so interesting whatever trick you did to it….she’s very mysterious.

  34. M m m — pretty spooky πŸ™‚
