Study of D:Looking up


I’m mad about linen.  Stretched, rolled, less expensive or deluxe, it IS my favorite painting surface.

It felt decadent to use linen for a study, but I got over the splurge;)

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. For your beautiful portraits it’s never a splurge – it’s a must!! 🙂 So human and emotive as always Elena!

  2. A complex expression I feel here Elena .. love just trying to fathom it all out …
    Indulge yourself … you’re worth it 😉

  3. Very beautiful, as usual.

    I like linen on cardboard, in the beginning it was a bit tricky but now I’m used to it and I find it very handy and it’s usually my surface of choice.

    I love the expressive look… wonderful.

  4. Glad you got over the splurge Elena, she is an awesome painting. Gorgeous skin tones and luminous hair. Looking up is such a difficult angle to paint, but you nailed it – she is enchanting.
