Elena Parashko Australian Artist

Thank you for visiting my online gallery.
On this homepage I like to share the stages involved in the painting process of my latest artwork.
Visit again soon to get a glimpse into the behind the scenes progress of my next painting.

After drawing the basic composition on canvas with charcoal, blocking in a variety of blues and greens for the distant ocean was the next stage in painting this breaking wave.

After blending the background colours to indicate distant ripples, I painted more detailed ripples in the foreground. Then came the fun of painting the translucent water of the wave face.

This is a detail of the foam and intricate brushwork in the foreground ripples. Painting the ocean is all about the direction of movement.

The final stage was to complete the rollover on top of the wave and add splashes of seapray. This is a big and bold painting conveying lots of energy.

"Aqueous", oil, 61 x 122 cm by Elena Parashko, $1990.
