  1. So beautiful artwork that words are not enough. Girl is also very beautiful. The light, the skin, the hair, the profile.. everything is perfect.

  2. Elena,this soft pink and yellow colours are so charming and blends perfectly with her youth and expression.I don’t know if it were me how would I cope with those curls but you have done it so effortlessly that they flow wonderfully and look gorgeous! 🙂

  3. Very lovely curls 🙂 I learn so much from your paintings and I’m inspired to work with a different medium very soon. I’m up for a challenge.

    1. Very soon, Maria. You are studying well. It’s really all about getting the values right to create the form, employing warm and cool color and changing up the edges-lost, sharp and soft. THanks very much for your kind words:)

  4. What a charming young woman! I love how you capture the light and the mix of color in her hair. It’s also a particularly beautiful angle of her chin…gorgeous.
