Watercolor Wednesday

Bold and heavy here-experimenting with darks. I think I prefer lighter, with outrageous color. Perhaps I’ll try the same subject with lots of color for next week…

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. If I say this is wonderful, it will sound too simple. I really can’t stop looking at it, I think it has a great set of emotions in it, and the dark parts just point to this girl’s emotional state..apathy and disappointment. Great work! 🙂

  2. It is not easy to make this kind of painting in watercolour, but you really did great work here, all details of her position seem very well and impressive… Wonderful painting. Thanks and Love, nia

  3. I really like the light and colorful better. There’s so much more emotion in it – at least for me. My first thought when I scrolled down…she’s upset or consumed with something…your work is amazing – as always!

  4. Very very beautiful portraits, dear Elena!
    It amazes me how talented you are!
    Thank you for sharing!
    Big hugs, much love, Stefania! 🙂

  5. Very nice! The darks are such a new direction from what I’ve seen before – great experiment!

  6. I agree it has a heavier feel, but in an interesting way – makes me wonder what or who she was looking at and thinking.

  7. I like what this portrait tells me about the character. I shall be interested to see whether a change of palette preserves or challenges that perception. Isn’t the choice of palette influenced by what you feel to be the true personality of the subject?
