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.
excellent creation. Keep it up.
Thanks very much!
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:)
Elena, just seen this – would be fantastic! I will email you..
It’s really interesting how these figures seem as if they’re scupted of mist: voluminous, but ethereal.
Aww..why does she look sad?
Not entirely sure;)
My favorite part is the background. Beautiful lighting. Ethereal.
Thank you Jill
Love these dream images – the bird children 🙂
They seem to be gentle and distant souls.
So well phrased. Thank you:)
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.
And you are very kind. Thank you!
Beautiful. The background work is fantastic.
It’s watercolor and alcohol (don’t tell;) Thanks Allyson Marie!
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.
I’m a dream flyer too, though I’ve never flown a plane! I’m glad the piece reminds you of childhood dreams.
You are really just too gifted!
You are very kind. Thank you very much:)
I greatly appreciate and enjoy following your thought process and development of a piece – even when I’m not particularly excited by the subject!!
Thanks Louis. I’ve got to go where the urge takes me until it flies out of the system;)
I like that!!
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!
Thanks you very much Karen. As much as I love color, it’s kind of nice just to concentrate on a narrative of sorts.
this is breathtaking. and i love the little birdhouse.
Thanks so much Janna.
This series already has a strong internal logic – I’m imagining all kinds of narratives spinning off this image. It’s wonderful.
Thank you Richard. It’s beginning to spin in all sorts of directions.
this is so beautiful …
Thank you very very much.
Again very nice work, dear Elena! You are a very talented artist!
Thank you for sharing!
Have a wonderful day! Big hugs, Stefania! 🙂
My pleasure Stefania. Thanks so much for visiting.:)
Another amazing image Elena.. superb!!
Thanks very very much:)
I am soooo loving this series and can not wait to see more!!!
Pressure is on;) Thanks so much:)
It quite sensual —– though it is also tricky expression.
I like this (but my click [Like] doesn’t work) 😉
Thanks ok Yoshi. Thanks so much for your comments!
Thank you Carlos!
I hope it is. Thank you!
This is so beautiful dear Elena, fascinated me. Thanks and Love, nia
Thanks very much Nia!
Just amazing! I love that tiny house with the bird flying out and the dreamy subtle patterns. And those feet!
The feet really do take over in this series;) Thanks so much Cindy!
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.
I very much appreciate the literary allusions. Thank you! Also glad you enjoyed the image.
Great work on the wings!
It’s fantastic! How can I learn to do beautiful paintings like this?
OMG. Beautiful image. I love it so much!
Elena, you are so so so talented!
Thank you! So glad you enjoyed it.
I definitely need to get you inked.
