Recent pencil drawings each approx. 16″x 20″
I love my General’s Kimberly 9xxB extra soft pencil.
Amazing work, Elena. I definitely would have thought the one on the left was a photograph.
Wow! These are stunning! Beautiful drawings, Elena.
Thanks so much, Anette!
The first one looks almost like a photo.
Thank you, Rabirius!

And you pencil drawings are so full of character. Two beautiful studies.
Thank you, Otto:)
Pencils are full of stories, memories and feelings, but only a brilliant and sensitive artist like you, is able to make them visible.
You are too kind, Marcelo. But I deeply appreciate your sentiment. Warm regards to you as well.
These are wonderful Elena – you have such an insight into character in your work. Lovely to see you back!
Glad to see you as well, Anna:) Thank you!
These are exceptional! Your work is always better than the best of today and challenging the past. Thank you so much!
Thank YOU, Resa!
Just wonderful, Elena! I really love the moment’s you capture. Stunning and even more vulnerable-seeming in pencil.
Thank you, Richard. I don’t draw nearly enough, so it feels special to do so.
Exquisite pieces. Yes, those glorious soft, dense blacks of the 9+ pencils. Such lovely work. You inspire and move me, as ever!
I’d love you to write my copy! Thanks so very much, Kathryn:)
😀 Maybe we’ll find the right excuse to collaborate at some point, eh! 😀
Sounds good, Kathryn!:)

🙂 Thank you, Elisa!
first I thought that’s a dream…than I thought no… this is real….and the opposite way again… but what I see now it’s definitely amazing ! Good work, hats off to Elena!
So much appreciated:) Thank you!
Contrasting portraits but, most importantly, each conveys the essence of the subject quite beautifully. There is a tactile dimension to the range of tones and textures and, as ever with your portraits, the eyes reveal so much! I’m sure you and General Kimberley are going to enjoy a very fruitful relationship!
Thank you so very much, Louis!
Excellent drawings, Elena. Good to see you again
Good to see you too! And thank you:)
Oh Elena, words don’t do justice to your talent…these are ‘real’. ❤
