LATEST NEWS

The latest news and upcoming events out of Elena Parashko Gallery.

June

The Summer issue of Leisure Painter (on sale in June) features Part 1 of my 2 part project challenging readers to paint a Double Delight rose. In this issue I provide a lot of tips and outline a strategy to complete the painting.

Behind the Scenes
Get a behind the scenes view into the painting process for my latest painting of sand dunes called “Deja Blue”. The technique I used for this seascape is quite unusual – I painted the whole canvas orange before I began! This created a very interesting warm effect throughout the whole painting, especially where I left bits of this orange under painting showing through in the sand dunes.
“Deja Blue”, by Elena Parashko, oil on canvas, 51 x 61 cm, $990.

July

Mittagong Art Retreat
I was scheduled to teach an art workshop again this July at The Hermitage in Mittagong NSW for the Australian National Capital Folk and Decorative Artists Inc. But due to current circumstances, it has been postponed until Saturday 10 July 2021. So if you would like to join me for a whole day workshop and learn the techniques involved in drawing with watercolour pencils, then put that weekend in your 2021 diary.
