Thank you very much:)
Amazing work! I love your portrait paintings so much, they are not only portraits, they are alive, they talk to you, they have character, and there’s much more that I can’t explain as I’m not a good speaker. Looking forward to seeing more of your paintings!

Thank you so much Amal!
I love it that you can see your presence in this – there’s a very strong through line with your other work. Great portrait.
Thanks very much Richard.
Stunning work Elena! You have a great understanding of light, which is such an important aspect of any form of visual art.
YOU have a great understanding of light, so I am humbled. Thank you.
Nice work as usual Elena. Oil on linen! One would almost get the idea that you’re starting to enjoy the medium 🙂 Lovely.
🙂 I’ve always loved oils, but canvas not so much. So I’ve been experimenting with all sorts of surfaces. Right now, I’m loving a good stretched linen. Thanks much Ian!
Stretched linen is pretty cool. Do you find oil dries slower on panel? Anyway, beautiful work as usual Elena 🙂
Come to think of it, I think the drying time is a little slower on a panel, but a drop of cobalt dryer mixed with the oil can help speed the process.
I like your portraits of this young lady – I’m just not sure I can appreciate the texture from the screen image.
So true Louis, the textures get lost. Working on the linen is a dream-a wonderful texture, but the more complex the texture it seems, the more difficult to capture in a photo. At least for me:)
A very compelling portrait Elena .
Thank you Poppy.
Such a wonderful portrait, one for the viewer to really gaze at and admire. I like the fall of the light, and the glints through the hair and oh those expressive eyes.
Thanks very much. I’m quite fond of this subject, and I’m pleased that a little of her charm is shinning through.
Just lovely Elena… absolutely lovely..
Thanks very much Helen.
This is amazing and attractive 😀
Wonderful work indeed 🙂
Gorgeous portrait Elena! Love her skin tones and eyes. You know how to work those value ranges so well – shows tremendous technicals.
Thanks so much Mary.
Fantastic, she is indeed charming. She looks as though she is just going to stand up.
Thanks much Annerose.
Wow! So amazingly expressive. The skin tone is always so great!
Thank you Cindy:)
That is incredible! Such a lovely painting.
Ah, that’s a beautiful portrait, Elena!!!
Thank you Marina:)
Stunning Portrait. Her Character was vividly captured —– I guess, she believes ghost 🙂
Perhaps:) Thanks Yoshi!
Amazing! I love your portraits!
Excellent work — this portrait feels very alive!
Thank you Jeff.
Oh wow! This is so beautifully done!!!! Life like almost 😀

This is beautiful, Elena. I particularly love her eyes.
