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! 🙂
Her curls are always amazing to look at, no matter the hair style:) Thanks so much!

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.
You certainly are up for the challenge. I look forward to seeing your work. Thank you, Allyson!:)

Thank you so much, Louis.
a beautiful girl, a beautiful painting… always!

Your brushwork is so sure Elena, you capture a lot with a few strokes. Your subjects have that sense of being caught unawares, lost in thought. The curls are lovely!
VEry much appreciated, Anna. Thank you.
The curls just leap out at me, like eels in a sandpit.
Ah the visual-yes!
You know that I enjoy all your work but this one is a standout.

Beautiful, I like the depth and volume. I wish one day I can do something remotely like that.
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:)

The facial expression….indifference of her precious age…also captured.
Thank you very much:)
