Watercolor Wednesday


A very simple little watercolor with a small Photoshop tweak, (the angle ofย the hair drips;)

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

  1. .. a fleeting imaginary moment captured beautifully with your watercolours Elena !

  2. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. 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.

  4. Exciting piece today Elena! Love the flow, movement and lines leading you right out the top right (like flying ribbons that gymnasts use).

  5. 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.

    1. 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:)

  6. 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) ๐Ÿ˜‰
