Ellen Eagle

Teneia, pastel on paper, 5 7/8 x 4 in


  1. Dear Ms. Eagle,
    Your painting is extraordinary. I feel that Teneia is so real to me that her youth, her soul has been captured for eternity. Your body of work, as presented on your website, is simply remarkable in its elegant, yet so natural approach to your varied choice of subjects. That many of these gems are of such a diminutive scale (Teneia is a perfect example) makes one marvel at your skills. The viewer"s eye is drawn into each painting, seeing the many tones of color and the nuances of shadows that comprise an individual's features. This approach to portrait painting can only be compared to the Great Masters.

  2. This is really beautiful, a tiny jewel, so sensitive in the colors and expression. Kudos!

  3. Thank you both Anonymous and Terry for your heart felt appreciation. Your comments give us steem to keep posting!
