Bird-Child Series


This is the second birdie child-vison influenced image.

Most of the elements in this piece began as really loose watercolor paintings. I brought them into Photoshop and digitally placed and painted.

I almost always put in a little more work after I show you what I’m up too. This piece is no exception, but I need a little time to know just what I want to do.

    Another supreme beauty Elena…something odd we just noticed – in my most recent pictures, the green third down – some really similar shapes, almost as if they have sprouted from the same world, one coloured, one black and white – some similar movement or something, it’s quite odd, can you see it?! I’d absolutely love to see your little figure float across in my emerald scene..

    • Yes! We must be astral projecting to the same plane;) I do love your work and I think we both appreciate the natural magic in the world. If you like, I’ll send you a figure to place in your scene, or you could send me a scene and we could collaborate:)

  3. It’s really interesting how these figures seem as if they’re scupted of mist: voluminous, but ethereal.

  4. Aww..why does she look sad?

  5. My favorite part is the background. Beautiful lighting. Ethereal.

  6. Love these dream images – the bird children ๐Ÿ™‚
    They seem to be gentle and distant souls.

  7. ohhh, she is delightful with her semi conscious and dreamy gaze, love that background and the glow, nice work as always elena, you are amazing.

  8. Beautiful. The background work is fantastic.

  9. This reminds me of my childhood. I always felt that I could fly if I really tried. And did fly so often in my dreams. I finally took flight lessons, and flew up through the clouds.

  10. You are really just too gifted!

  11. I greatly appreciate and enjoy following your thought process and development of a piece – even when I’m not particularly excited by the subject!!

  12. Such gorgeous light in this – she seems weightless, although her mind might weigh heavy… I love the monochromatic ethereal sense of the drawing. Absolutely stunning!

  13. this is breathtaking. and i love the little birdhouse.

  14. This series already has a strong internal logic – I’m imagining all kinds of narratives spinning off this image. It’s wonderful.

  15. this is so beautiful …

  16. Again very nice work, dear Elena! You are a very talented artist!
    Thank you for sharing!
    Have a wonderful day! Big hugs, Stefania! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Another amazing image Elena.. superb!!

  18. I am soooo loving this series and can not wait to see more!!!

  19. It quite sensual —– though it is also tricky expression.
    I like this (but my click [Like] doesn’t work) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. This is so beautiful dear Elena, fascinated me. Thanks and Love, nia

  21. Just amazing! I love that tiny house with the bird flying out and the dreamy subtle patterns. And those feet!

    I’m reminded of the Cumaean Sibyl who failed to ask for eternal youth. With age her body grew smaller and smaller, till she was kept in a tiny cage. The epigraph to T. S. Eliot’s poem, “The Waste Land” makes reference to this.

    By aside from this literary connection, your bird/child phantasm is truly glorious.

  23. Great work on the wings!

  24. It’s fantastic! How can I learn to do beautiful paintings like this?

  25. OMG. Beautiful image. I love it so much!
    Elena, you are so so so talented!
