  1. What a superb portrait! The viewpoint (more characteristic of photography than portrait painting) is an inspired choice and accentuates the vivacity of your subject.

  2. Stunning work, Elena! The perspective, the expression, the light..just amazing. I love how you’ve shown those little strands of gray hair near her ear. Very, very well done.

  3. Wow! I’m sure you must be sick of the wows, but that’s always what happens! This is just amazing with this interesting pose. Once again practically photorealistic but better! And so large too, holy cow!

  4. (Hey, this isn’t Photo Friday is it?!)
    You have painted one jaw-dropping piece of art here, Elena. I love the unique perspective. A beautifully radiant subject. : )

  5. Congratulations, dear Elena! Splendid portrait created by you is created in a realistic style. Truly you have a natural talent!
    Thank you so much for sharing with us your work!
    Have a wonderful day and many blessings!
    Big hugs with much love, Stefania! 🙂
