A very simple little watercolor with a small Photoshop tweak, (the angle of the hair drips;)
Little Weirdies:The Plan
Simple but beautiful. Really like this one Elena 🙂
Incredible form and movement in this one Elena!
The stillness of movement.
I adore its deceptive simplicity.
Wish I were still limber enough to get into a position like that! She’s lovely, Elena.
Superb Elena. Love how it can convey so much within it’s simplicity!
Thanks very much!
A fantastic gesture and caught movement!
Elena, this is amazing. I think its beauty lies in its simplicity!
Thank you Uday
So simple and elegant – I think I have a new favorite Elena!
.. a fleeting imaginary moment captured beautifully with your watercolours Elena !
Thank you Poppy:)
This is beautiful – so much freedom and grace from such a simple, eloquent form.
Thanks very much:)

Thank you Yoshi!
I wish I were as free.
I think we all do 🙂
you call it simple. I call it movingly beautiful.
And I so appreciate that.
I love those ‘simple’ watercolors: just some water running over the paper and you are able to show a lot. Great one, Elena!
Thanks so much!
An excellent example of minimalism in watercolour.
beautiful dancing shape and sharp oneness !
Beautiful curve, very expressive.
I like how simple this looks, Elena!
Thank you Tom:)
Again an outline all too beautiful, dear Elena! I would love to see her in the end!
Hope you have a wonderful day. Big hugs, much love, Stefania! 🙂
Thank you Stefania!
Simple but beautiful!
Oh my…simplicity at its finest!! That hair, those hips, those drips! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!
It always amazes me how you with only a few brush strokes can create such expressive paintings. Unnecessary to say that I love this! So much life and energy – and beautiful colours taken from a limited palette.
So pleased you like it Otto. Thanks very much:)
Oh Elena…she is lovely!!!!! 🙂 Gentle too
Many thanks Shree:)
I like her sooooo much! I mean, the hair is so effective. The simplicity is what draws me in. You really have quite the gift, darling.
Thank you. So much appreciated:)
Exciting piece today Elena! Love the flow, movement and lines leading you right out the top right (like flying ribbons that gymnasts use).
Thank you Mary!
Ah, lovely, Elena!!!
Thanks much Marina:)
This is the very problem I’ve been trying to solve many years.
Looks almost carefully negotiated line was created by a flick of blush instant.
Where this control came from ?
I want to re-blog and discuss further.
I’d be flattered Yoshi. I guess, I plan in my head a bit to make sure the figure will fit on the page (mentally count out head size both vertically and horizontally, but really loosely). Then see the movement on the spine and extremities. The force takes over. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t:)
Excellent feel of motion here.
Thank you Jeff.
I like it!
Wow! A marvelously fluid dancer, maybe with dreadlocks or just wild hair. Those simple paint strokes making up the figure are genius. (Also, I can’t remember the last time I said “marvelously” lol) 😉
Oh, I like marvelously;) Thanks very much Cindy!
Lovely body angle!
Oh, I like this. So much revealed through so little.
Much appreciated John.
Oh Elena, I love the fluidity of your watercolour figures. x
