  1. Excellent. 🙂 Reminds me a bit of that expression the young American Olympian had when winning a medal.

  2. This is clearly going to be a stunning series. Capturing the inner machinations of the adolescent mind is quite a challenge!

  3. Love this moment . An expression many of us will perhaps be familiar with 🙂
    Gorgeous painting Elena .

    1. Many of us remember of have kids, or young family members. Probably a universal:) Or maybe not-there’s and idea for a cross cultural project! Thanks so much Poppy!

    1. Some take days, others maybe four or five hrs. Can’t explain why-some just click automatically and other I really have to work for. Thanks so much Jill.

  4. You’re portraying an interesting age, on the cusp of adulthood, but not quite. I see the downcast eyes portraying some uncertainty, not quite wanting to look at the world full on. There’s vulnerability here.

  5. Elena has done it again! The blonde hair is spectacular. I remember the first day I realized that you needed to add dark colours to fair hair to make it more three-dimensional. A great discovery that you’ve captured here.

  6. Gorgeous work Elena. Wonderful skin tones, but what I can’t get over is how perfect you’ve captured her expression.

  7. Do you work from a photograph, Elena? These oils are so animated and life-like. Remarkable, really.
