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.

Comments on: "Watercolor Wednesday" (60)

  1. She’s so pretty…and looks like she’s deep in thought!

  2. 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.

  4. This is lovely! Just curious…do you paint from a photograph? I adore how you capture light.

  5. the crossing of the toes makes her look a little shy or maybe demure..

  12. Hey thanks for the thumbs up on my page πŸ™‚ I just wanted to tell you I really enjoy your water color Wednesdays. You really have beautiful art.

  13. She’s beautiful, Elena. She has an old fashioned quality about her. Her hairstyle and cost have a lovely vintage feel.

  14. I can’t stop looking at these mesmerizing eyes. I am trying to guess what she is thinking.

  15. Incredible piece of art. Vernal bloom.

  16. You’re so good at encapsulating character with your brushstrokes – this is lovely!

  17. 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.

  18. Beautiful, Marie. You are a poet with a brush. πŸ™‚

    You are very talented… Thank You for sharing this!

  24. 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!!

  25. Wouldn’t worry about hard edges, she’s lovely. You caught a telling moment.

  26. Beautifully painted, Elena.

  27. 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?

    • Great question Karen. Most of these watercolor Wed. watercolors are small-no larger than 9.5″x12″. A few are twice that size. And yes, she’s a bit reserved. Thank you!

  28. Wow! Soft beautiful style with just the right amount of definition. Quit making it look so easy! πŸ˜›

  29. LOVE the socks. πŸ™‚

  30. 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.
