Watercolor Wednesday

Orange socks-watercolor sketch.



In the interest of better perspective, I should have blurred or lifted the color from the hard line on the bottom of the coat, behind her feet.

It’s something I’ll remember next time.

  1. You’re right about the hard line on the skirt: it stops the eye from travelling down the page. But it’s only a minor issue overall. I adore the tangerine-colored squiggle that delineates the left side of the figure, and how it’s echoed on the right.

    1. Thank you! The watercolors come from photo sources mixed and matched, sometimes more directly, sometimes just inspiration and sometimes just what’s rolling around in my head. Sometimes all three:)

  2. Beautiful . Intriguing . You mange to portray so much with your work Elena .
    I think she has a secret she wants to be asked about but maybe she will tell .. maybe not …
    LOL *getting carried away*

  3. very beautiful color for the socks : the first point, and after that I search to see the face, the hands and after that the coat. You make me travel in the watercolor. Bravo.

  4. Very beautiful picture, dear Elena! So delicate and full of candor! I like it very much! You have really knack! Congratulations! Thank you so much for sharing with us your work so beautiful!
    Have a wonderful day and many blessings! Big hugs, with much drag, Stefania! πŸ™‚

  5. Superb quality Elena, you have a unique quality about your work that draws the viewer right into the painting. In this case, her gorgeous face and eyes are intriguing. Wonderful!!

  6. She does have a lovely, intense gaze and interesting body language – a bit protective maybe? A gorgeous piece.
    I wonder how big this is, are you painting each Wednesday Watercolour on the same size of paper?

  7. Now that expression is far, far, far more perplexing than a million Mona Lisa’s! Gawd, i could stare into her eyes for ten lifetimes and still not know what she’s thinking.
