Alla prima 16″x 20″ Oil on Linen

While struggling with the  next set of “Cloaked” paintings,  I felt the need to work with a big brush, my favorite male model and some color!

  1. For me this beautiful painting expresses personal freedom, a feeling of stretching beyond limitations that hold us back, seeking higher understanding. It’s a painting with an enormous upward energy boost.

  2. There is a great harmony between his pose,expression and the colours in the background.His lucid eyes,his stretched neck with the gradients of blue which is getting more and more vivid emphasize his creative and intuitive personality.Stretching the neck here symbolizes -to me-his connection with mystical realm.Stunning work! 🙂

  3. Your paintings always seem, to me, to be more than just the subject… they always seem to be starting points for stories (:

  4. Beautiful loose feel to this piece Elena – wonderful upward strokes in the background and great choice of blue sort of illuminating the figure.

      1. I am glad, Elena. Caravaggio was an interesting character in many ways. Congratulations to you and your model for having done something really exceptional.
