    Just love this cheekiness! The little girl has a look of you about her Elena, is she a relation?

  2. Reminds me how much of an “event” it was having photographs taken . . . . such a cute little pair and so well done Elena.

  3. An outline cheerful childhood world, very nice set. I like very much, dear Elena. Thank you so much for sharing. πŸ™‚

  4. So cute, my Mother used to dress us up like this when we were little.

  5. 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.

  6. Almost forgotten but permanent memory is immortalised…:) Excellent in every way πŸ™‚

  7. Beautiful Elena, I love the expression on the little brother’s face….

  8. This is lovely Elena! πŸ™‚

  9. 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 …:-)

  11. 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.

  12. Gorgeous! It’s amazing that you’re able to create such detail with watercolors. Great job πŸ™‚

  13. So sweet! Also charming! The folds and light catching the fabric is just amazing. As usual. πŸ˜€

  14. I could have been that little boy.

  15. As always, a beautiful watercolor with great composition, nice minimal color scheme and your usual neat, expressive brushstroke. Great job, Elena! πŸ™‚

  16. Beautiful figures, Elena. Great face expressions (as usual) with just a little bit of color…

  17. Dressed up and carefree – beautifully done, Elena! πŸ™‚

  18. So lovely! What a wonderful painting, Elena!

  19. Love this!! THe play clothes era.
