  1. She’s really in a different world, or time…great!

  2. This is beautiful, Elena! I remember when I used to be able to read that way. Not any more…old creaky bones. 😉

  3. i love drafts. because i see the work, i feel the brush

  4. A lovely painting. You have really captured the young woman being fully concentrated and absorbed. I love the causal and free strokes.

  5. This is beautiful Elena. One can sense the focus and concentration with which she is reading that book.

    I bet you could make an abstract look sensuous (:

  7. Excellent! You have wonderfully depicted her concentration,her features,the hair are all amazing,looks alive!I admire how expertly you use the brush,so admirable 🙂

  8. How well you’ve captured this girl immersed in her book. Love the blue fingernail, and the hand bent to cradle a cheek.

  9. Wonderful gestural strokes. They match the casualness of the pose, in a way.
    I’m loving these, Elena!

  10. Speedy! What! For goodness sake. Gorgeous face and hair! It is inspiring here at your blog, but also daunting. I will keep practicing. 😀

    • Not to be daunted! We all have our “specialties”. I marvel over your design and patterns and terrific work with simple pencils and pens:) Speedy is actually easier, but thank you!:)

  11. This one happily reminds of a Van Gogh portrait, especially the lighter areas.

  12. It is very beautiful painting created, Elena. It evokes inner wellbeing and comfort! I really like! Thank you for sharing with us your wonderful work!
    All the best to you, Elena! ❤ 🙂

  13. Gorgeous Elena, you gave us her relaxed state of mind with your swift strokes and perfectly balance of light and shadow. The lines are working beautifully.

  14. the lips…the hair…oh my…love!
