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.

For this painting of Catseye Beach on Hamilton Island, I used a texturised board. This adds a bit of chunkiness and movement to the completed painting. I began with the sky and cloud bank, the speckly sand and the underpainting of the distinctive headland called Passage Peak. 

Midtones and highlights were added to the rock face and vegetation on the headland. Then I layered gorgeous shades of dark to light turquoise for the beautiful ocean colours of the Whitsundays. 

When you zoom in on part of the painting, you can see the detail of treetops and rocks on Passage Peak. A tiny couple walking hand in hand were added into the scene. This can really personalise the painting for viewers, especially those who have walked along this famous beach.

The finished painting.
