Fantasy drama with a little digital intervention.

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. 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?

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

      1. 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…)

  5. 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™‚
