  1. Your creativity is unmatched, this piece is stunning. I love the white wash, from the types of strokes to how you managed to push her back – it provides a whole different look for this young girl. Who by the way, is quite extraordinary.

  2. GREAT picture of a georgeous looking girl.
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. I love this one– feels a bit ghostly, and you really captured some feeling in her eyes. Thanks for sharing…

  4. I like it…that band over her eyes…at first it may seem like it’s shielding her vision, but you know when I keep looking at it…it becomes clear..it’s allowing her to see through the illusions..and into reality 🙂

  5. Just wow. What a stunning portrait. The finished piece is even more striking than the first. She has such a sad or wistful look, which is intensified with the changes. Outstanding!

  6. The first portrait conveys the impression of a reasonably self-assured person, able to face the artist. The second suggests a private person, not wishing to be seen. She is detached – viewing the scene from the outside. Perhaps even looking in on the artist at work!

  7. It’s so interesting how these transform with that veil of white. I love what it does, softening and loosening the meaning of the work and the gaze. Incredibly beautiful!

  8. So beautiful portraits, dear Elena! Congratulations!
    The glaze has a hint of mystery.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Have a wonderful day, dear Elena!
    Big hugs, much love, Stefania! 🙂

  9. Wow, she’s a beauty. Both versions are beautiful, but I didn’t notice her incredible eyes and beautiful lips until you “frosted” her. I just love this painting. Fantastic!
