  1. Another superb, soulful piece, Elena. It’s a joy every time I come here; each painting seems like a tutorial on capturing layers of personality and context, rich with beautiful color and textures. Sigh. Something I’ll never manage at such levels, but am enriched just by experiencing through your work. Thank you! 🙂

    1. Oh my, Kathryn. I’ll never manage to do what you do. That’s what is so wonderful about blogging, so many different things to say and methods of expression. I very much appreciate your comment and support. Thank you:)

  2. turbulent roller caster of emotions all in one piece… your talent never ceases to amaze me! thank you 🙂

  3. Dear Elena, the portrait is absolutely stunning! You’ve worked so nice! Congratulations! Thank you so much for sharing with us your work so beautiful!
    Have a wonderful day! Big hugs, Ştefania & lt; 3 🙂

  4. hmm, I posted a comment here earlier today but don’t see it. I forget what I said, but after I wrote it I must have been too excited about your work and forgot to click on the post comment. 🙂 This is a fantastic piece.

  5. Wow, Elena, so much excellence to take in…the eyes, the lips, the slight upturn in the nose, the sweep of her hair, the skin tones, and the lovely diamond…all wonderful!

      1. It’s managing all those little values, I would imagine – you the perfectionist would notice, but for me they are brilliant spots of beauty. To be able to paint a portrait – my dream to try one day. But for now I continue along my path.

  6. Lovely how you frame your portraits! It makes them have a personal touch! In this painting I specially like how you resolved her lips, and how her look maintains the spectator´s one.
