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.
She’s so pretty…and looks like she’s deep in thought!
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.
Such a beautiful pose, simply gorgeous..
This is lovely! Just curious…do you paint from a photograph? I adore how you capture light.
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:)
the crossing of the toes makes her look a little shy or maybe demure..
I think so too.
blurred or not, she is beautiful and trusts no one!
That could be it!:)
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*
Not at all:) Love your comments. Thank you very much.
c’est si délicat…
Love the hot colors
excellent painting 🙂
Oh, I love this one, Elena – there’s a real richness to it.
Thank you Anne!
Hey thanks for the thumbs up on my page 🙂 I just wanted to tell you I really enjoy your water color Wednesdays. You really have beautiful art.
She’s beautiful, Elena. She has an old fashioned quality about her. Her hairstyle and cost have a lovely vintage feel.
Thank you Jill!
I can’t stop looking at these mesmerizing eyes. I am trying to guess what she is thinking.
Me too;) Thanks Marcelo!
Incredible piece of art. Vernal bloom.
Indeed, vernal bloom. Thank you Arjun.
You’re so good at encapsulating character with your brushstrokes – this is lovely!
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.
Coming from an excellent watercolorist like you, I’m honored. Thank you.
Beautiful, Marie. You are a poet with a brush. 🙂
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! 🙂
A wonderful week to you Stefania! Thanks so much for your comments, they are appreciated:)
With five granddaughters I’m more than comfortable here – I can relate to this picture, and I like it!
Lucky you! How wonderful! Someday I hope to have a grandchild:) Thanks Louis!
Great facial expression. Your blending with water color is always so well done.
Thanks so much Allyson Marie!
Another lovely watercolour Elena. Gorgeous.
You are very talented… Thank You for sharing this!
My pleasure entirely. Thank you!
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!!
You are very kind Mary. Thanks very much:)
Wouldn’t worry about hard edges, she’s lovely. You caught a telling moment.
Thank you Amal:)
Beautifully painted, Elena.
Thank you Anita.
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!
Wow! Soft beautiful style with just the right amount of definition. Quit making it look so easy! 😛
I say the same to you Cindy:) Thanks!
LOVE the socks. 🙂
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.
Oh my! I thank you John-very much:)
Just calling it as I see it. It’s a remarkable capture 🙂
