I think this is one of the most beautiful paintings I’ve ever seen. He must be chuffed. Incredible work Elena. *smiles*
– Esme in awe upon the Cloud
So very pleased that you enjoy this portrait, Esme. Thanks very much:0
I love the gentleness expressed in this portrait. It’s so beautiful. Tommy looks like someone I’d want to know!
He is a sweetheart:) Thanks so much, Karen.
Congrats on your award for this piece, Elena! It’s certainly well deserved. Absolutely amazing work. Best – Sheri
You are very kind, Sheri. Thank you!
OH!!! i am so glad for your award on this one! I remember LOVING it and it just seemed so different from the others! i get very excited when i like things!
🙂 Thanks so much, Elisa!
Tommy’s eyes are young, despite his body: they show in his mouth
His eyes are always glittering. Thank you M. Lewis:)
Wonderful – those eyes!
Thanks much, Emily!
Wonderful work, Elena. He looks like he has a lot to say but is hesitant to say it, and has come to the conclusion that he is okay with that.
Sounds about right, James:) Thank you.
That’s just marvellous, Elena.
I just unsubscribed and re-subscribed to your blog as I haven’t been receiving email notifications. I wish WP would fix this!
Thanks, Ashley. Yeah, seems to be a common problem. Thanks again:)
I saw amazing art here today. I’ve always adored your style & your paintings. Thank you!
Thank YOU, Resa!
I know this post has been up for a while, but I still want to say that I love this painting. You have really captured the character of this man masterly. He looks so alive.
Thanks so very much, Otto.
I’ve missed your art work Elena . Your portrait has an amazing quality in all respects . Your Gentleman is just that .Wonderful 🙂
Very much appreciated, Louise.
Superb portrait, Elena! Absolutely wonderful.
Thanks so much, Dina!
So alive and expressive!
Thank you very much, Karen!
His eyes are so sparkly and blue! So much emotion just in the eyes!
Thanks much, Jess!
Amazing!! Simply fabulous!
Thank very much!
This is, by far, your best painting yet, Elena. The lighting is superb. The brush strokes are wonderful, your model’s pose is perfect, and his facial features and expression are sublime. It’s going to be hard for you to top this. I wish I had more time for painting, but a 9 to 5 job and other responsibilities keep getting in my way.
Thanks so much, Jill. I’m pretty happy with this one. You’ve got to find a moment or two to pull out those watercolors!
A moving blend of awareness of the present and a nostalgic glance to the past to the world of childhood.
Yes, as we age that look back is inevitable. Thanks, Marcelo.
Excellent. I like how the white shirt and beard contrast the black background.
Thank you, Rabirius.
Wow, amazing work as per usual, Elena! His eyes are intelligent and inquisitive.
Looking forward to your WsIP!
Thanks, Millie! Working hard!
His eyes, the body language, the light…it’s all so special…
Thanks so very much, Robert.
Excellent – full of character.
Many thanks, Louis.
At the risk of sounding like a stuck record…the loving light in your creations is magic Elena. ❤
No stuck record, Jane. Just welcome kindness. Thank you!
Superb. Consider this a blast with bellows 🙂
Thank you, Derrick, I shall!:)
Reminds me slightly of Ken Currie’s later work – face in focus, body less defined.
It’s all about the face for me. The juicy part of painting:) Thanks, Marie.
OH the living energy and light just give life share life, exhibit life with these
Love your poetic words, Elisa. Thank you:)
Your last couple of posts have been great…but this one…this one speaks to me! Wonderful! You bring out so much feeling in this one!
There’s a reason for the feeling:) So pleased that you see it. Thank so very much, Robin.
Kind, wise and so very human.. Elena, you just get better and better! It’s almost like a photograph the way T’s face lights up.
Many thanks, Cath! 🙂
Amazing! Beautiful work, great job! The eyes are really captivating.
Thank you, Isabel!
wow and one more wow !
This is amazing. Love your choice and handle of the colours.
Thank you, Maria!

I love this, especially the way you have capture the rather melancholy look in the eyes.
Much appreciated, David.
It’s his eyes…wow. I am so engaged with this

What tenderness! Well done.

OMG! I absolutely love this painting in every way! Its perfect!
Thanks so very much, Claudia!
Sweet Neptune, that’s fantastic!
I was wondering recently about who, exactly, gets chosen to do the portrait of Obama after his term is up. You should. You really, really should.
If only, John:) A thousand thanks for your vote of confidence!
This is beautiful, humanistic and evocative. His kind heart and lovely soul revealed.
Hello, you! What a lovely surprise! I’d love to paint YOU. Much love.
Wow! He looks like someone I would want to sit and chat with! I love his relaxed and inviting expression! The eyes and whiskers are amazingly detailed! Lovely. 🙂
I can assure you, that he is the best. Insightful, Patsy! Thanks so much:)
That’s wonderful! You’re welcome, Elena. Is he a relative of yours?
Stunning Elena – he is amazingly relaxed and his eyes are masterfully done.
Many thanks, Mary.
What a beautiful, engaging painting. Your handling of light and shade is truly wonderful.
