Watercolour from the Heart

Lena Kukuy's watercolours reflect her love of horses both magnificent and humble. These are her beauties. Years of Russian training and her keen eye combine to show more than an outer beauty. Be it a chookyard, stable, garden or city, Elena's paintings share her feelings for her subject with the simplicity and fluent strokes of an artist who can make pigment work for her.
