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.

A lovely couple from Perth saw my artwork online and commissioned me to do a painting for them. They explained what they had in mind and I came up with this sketch for their approval. There is a lot of symbolism in this painting: the couple are walking along the beach with their 3 children represented as birds flying overhead. Their sister, who recently passed away, is symbolised by the single bird flying away in the right corner of the painting.

At this stage I have the basic scene completed in oil paints. As I am based in Sydney, all communication with my clients was done via email - how wonderful and easy technology is!

This is a detail of the couple walking on the beach hand in hand. With commissioned pieces, clients get to custom design everything, from the title of the painting down to the colour of their swimming costumes.

How commissions work ...

The final stage was to paint the clouds, sailing boat on the horizon and birds in the sky. My clients were thrilled with the finished painting.
"Better Together", oil, 50 x 50 cm by Elena Parashko.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much from both of us for creating such a personalised piece of artwork that will bring great joy and meaning to our lives as it hangs proudly in our home. You have been amazing throughout the whole process. We would love to eventually meet you some day. Keep up the good work."
