Watercolor Wednesday


A good-natured, early morning, pop in the teeth, just out of bed, ten minute portrait!

Nope, nobody I know.  Really.  Only  loosely based on someone I know.  Nope, not telling.   She’s pure fiction.   Such fun watching her materialize!

BTW, not talking about my teeth. They stay put.

    I’ve seen a few out in their teeth and take them out and lose them in my time Elena, but this takes the biscuit for hilarity 🙂
    Wonderful depiction of morning ritual familiar to so many ! oo but not me 😉

  2. Beautiful painting, dear Elena. Excellent color!
    You thought a somewhat older person is forced to have dentures?
    Have a wonderful day! Big hugs, much love, Stefania! 🙂

  3. […] to Elena Caravela for the inspiration.  Check out her fantastic work on her blog, here.  I adore her bold use of color – realistic in only the loosest sense.  She also employs […]

  27. Your watercolors are always my favorites. There is always so much color and expression! I love this one. Such a raw and intimate moment….just for the fact….who captures someone doing this? So beautiful.

    • Thanks so much Eon. BTW, I’m back to not being able to leave a comment on your blog.
      So sorry. I’d love to comment but it just won’t allow me to.

      • Why does it do that? So weird. I may have to just completely delete this comment system I’m using, because I don’t like that. If you have a problem, others way too. I’ll look into it today. Thanks for letting me know again.

  28. I do believe you’re the first artist in history to capture the denture moment… and capture it with such beauty! Love it!

  29. Love it. Plus a worthy message: Leaving the house without ones teeth could ruin your whole day.

  30. A great moment to portraitize! Who would have thought of that? You.

  31. 🙂 🙂 🙂
    Love this one. She’s awesome.
