Drawing the female figure and the nude is a unique experience for any artist. The Artist, Elena Esina, exposes the beauty and depth of the feminine essence through her intimate artistic nude drawings. Her detailed drawings are made completely with the use of charcoal. By getting rid of colour, the Artist achieves a clear mood and an amazing intensity of emotion and energy, in her almost surreal drawings of the female figure and the nude. Browsing through her online art gallery I was particularly intrigued by the skill of this artist. Such fragile medium as charcoal is especially tricky to work with in the small scale drawings. Elena’s art work has an enchanting sensibility. Her artwork draws you in by it’s beauty and smooth lines of the female nude and you find yourself in this calm, and tranquil space of contemplation.
