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.

This is another commission I recently completed as a 50th birthday gift for a client. Original artwork is a wonderful way to comemorate special events like that. At this stage of the painting process, all the basic underpainting is done including my unique style of painting sand.

The completed painting. I tried to create the feeling in the viewer of actually standing on this beach listening to the sound of the breaking wave. 
"New Beginnings Keep on Rolling" by Elena Parashko, 61 x 45 cm, commission.

When you look closely at the breaking wave, you can see how painting seascapes is all about capturing movement. Water is tricky to paint because its colour is very much influenced by its density, its reflective quality as well as what is below and above.

The wash on the shoreline is an interesting and complex pattern of lacy foam. I am forever inspired by the amazing colours, textures and patterns found in nature.  This comes through in my realistic paintings as well as abstract pieces.
