Just love this cheekiness! The little girl has a look of you about her Elena, is she a relation?
You always amaze me with your insight Cath! Yes, while it’s not a portrait of my mom, it is based on her:)
Haha, oh great! Just kind of felt it somehow!
Reminds me how much of an “event” it was having photographs taken . . . . such a cute little pair and so well done Elena.
Oh yes:) Thanks ever so much Patti.
An outline cheerful childhood world, very nice set. I like very much, dear Elena. Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂
Thanks so much Stefania:)
So cute, my Mother used to dress us up like this when we were little.
I remember it too:) Thanks Mary.
There is a delightful timeless quality about this picture — it invites us to revisit our children and grandchildren at similar ages and , perhaps, even recall our own childhood.
I’m so pleased to hear that Louis. Thanks so much for your insightful comment.
Almost forgotten but permanent memory is immortalised…:) Excellent in every way 🙂
Thanks ever so much:)
Beautiful Elena, I love the expression on the little brother’s face….
🙂 Thank you Jen.
This is lovely Elena! 🙂
Thank you Adrian:)
Preserving the memory.
They are unlikely to be aware that their past starts right now.
Oh Elena these little ones should be in a book ! Such expressions …
As a youngster one of my favourite Ladybird Books was ‘The Party’ your young girl here reminds me of that era ..
A wonderful nostalgic series this is turning out to be …:-)
I love your comments Poppy:) Thanks so much.
How sweet. I wonder if parents still inflict this kind of thing on their children. You captured the awkwardness beautifully.
Yes, I think they still do, although today I think there are more candids and fewer “stand up straight and smile or else” shots. Thank goodness:) Thanks much Richard.
Gorgeous! It’s amazing that you’re able to create such detail with watercolors. Great job 🙂
Thanks so much:)
So sweet! Also charming! The folds and light catching the fabric is just amazing. As usual. 😀
Thank you Cindy:)
I could have been that little boy.
I can see it Terry;)
As always, a beautiful watercolor with great composition, nice minimal color scheme and your usual neat, expressive brushstroke. Great job, Elena! 🙂
Much appreciated Stefano!
Beautiful figures, Elena. Great face expressions (as usual) with just a little bit of color…
Just a little bit:) Thanks Nuno.
Dressed up and carefree – beautifully done, Elena! 🙂
Thanks very much Marina:)
So lovely! What a wonderful painting, Elena!
Thanks so much Anette:)
Love this!! THe play clothes era.
Indeed! This is from the 40’s:)
Love the different personalities coming through! : )
Such a great painting, Elena.
Yes, siblings but very different personalities. Thank you Karen:)
I love the whimsical look on the little boy. This is just like my brother and me. I always smiled for the people.
🙂 Thank you. Glad you like it.
Cute – very well done… 🙂
