Artist Creates Stunning Watercolor Paintings of the Places She Visits

Elena Efremova is a Russian artist focused on painting, drawing and illustration currently based in France. She has featured highly popular work which creatively visualizes the thoughts and scenes before, by not just painting them, but making them an extension of reality which finds her paper to finish its journey in. Her latest work features stunning watercolor landscapes that fit perfectly into the real image before like a missing puzzle piece.

She builds her set of work from her love for architecture, photography and art which incorporates these three concepts. Her art creates an opportunity for her audience to see more than what meets the eye in the view before them, whether it be the riverside in the middle of a city, a harbour or even a boat resting on the water. She fills in the gap only the artist within her can see and instead fits it with her own interpretation of the elements that must play into the scene. Efremova subtly uses this series to built upon the idea of free expression and creative liberty which the spectators can find motivation from.

Elena Efremova turns everyday life that most people take for granted into magical little watercolor drawings that distils a scene, accentuating the depth and beauty in it. The artist’s detailed paintings are vibrant and natural, suggesting a perspective of life that is refreshing and optimistic because of the promise each scene holds.

1. Paris, France

If the French architecture wasn’t enough to leave you breathless, the way this painting overlays it is enough to make your jaw drop.

2. Calanques de Luminy, France

The way the ocean blends into the horizon by itself makes it tough to know where this painting ends and nature begins.

3. Calanques de Luminy, France

This mountainside is so captivating and is layered so perfectly over top of this natural landscape that it almost looks like legit photography.

4. Porto, Portugal

The way she perfectly laid out this painting to cut off right where the boat floats into the frame is an example of art wonderfully imitating life.

5. Marseille, France

The shading on the skyline is faded so accurately that Efremova looks like she’s just holding a frame around the actual landscape.

6. Vinon-sur-Verdon, France

The way the painting melds over the edge of that villa with the same hue of blue as the sky couldn’t be any more bang-on.

7. Allemagne-De-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Cote D'Azur, France

Bonus points for even nailing the cloud formation in this painting! It would be amazing to see how long it takes Efremova to create these paintings because it looks like she paints them in seconds to get the perfect photos.

8. Gréoux-les-Bains, France

Being able to frame this skyline perfectly is amazing. If that isn’t impressive enough, the artist makes the ripples and waves in the water totally on point, too!

9. Paris, France

Even though the wind is invisible, the artist manages to catch it dancing across the water and making the French flag wave in this detailed painting.

10. Aix-en-Provence, France

The beauty that the artist creates in her body of work comes from everything being so vibrant and natural, all at the same time.

11. Gréoux-les-Bains, France

The way this artist is able to capture the depth and beauty of everyday life is simply astonishing.

12. Marseille Vieux Port, France

The artist truly takes the audience on a high tide ride by applying her skills to distill life at sea through this piece.

13. Calanque De La Côte Bleue, France

Seeing the way that Efremova even took the time to paint the waves breaking over the rocks reveals her stunning attention to detail.

14. Venezia, Italy

Swimming through the streets would be pretty amazing, but if I had this painting in my living room, I think I would settle for cruising down a sidewalk.

15. Lisbon Alfama, Portgual

The layered approach in the architecture in this painting truly makes the colorful spirit of Portugal come alive.

16. Swiss countryside, Switzerland

This may be a crowning achievement in Efremova’s portfolio. The way she beautifully captures the country, the mist lifting off the sea, and the stacked mountainside is enough to leave anyone speechless.

Confessions of a Passionate Hetalian

You know, I’d often tell myself that Hetalia is exactly what I needed in my life.

A missing puzzle piece that completes a perfect image of me.

I love Hetalia with all my heart, and I wouldn’t even know what I would’ve done without it.

It has changed me in so many positive ways that I can hardly express through words at this very moment.

For four years and a half I became more and more upbeat and life seemed simpler to live.

That’s why I am proud to say that I am a Hetalian.

A Hetalian for life.

Daddy thinking about being super passionate and gentle with his princess, Slowly making love while kissing and giving each other love bites. Our bodies stuck together like glue, Your legs wrapped tightly around my waist, Your finger nails gliding down my back leaving marks, Your warm breath coming out against my neck or into my mouth with every moan you let out, Pulling my head back from a kiss while softly biting on your lower lip before looking into your eyes, Stopping while all the way inside you to feel like we’re one as I softly kiss your neck up to your ear and whisper “I love you”. I want to make love to you, Princess. I want us to feel so close that it feels as if we were one human being, two puzzle pieces finally connecting. I want it to be slow and leave us sweaty and both completely out of breath to fall asleep in each other’s arms. I want to wake up the morning after in the messy clumped up sheets with your head on my chest and kiss you good morning. I want us to slowly wake up together while kissing in bed and probably make love again with the early morning sunlight peeking through the curtains and glistening on your soft skin. Slowly get up and with only underwear on go make some breakfast together, my loose shirt on you with only panties on underneath looking as happy as a kitten rolling around in catnip. Running your hand through your messy hair and smiling at me constantly. Picking you up as you wrap your legs around my waist to kiss you while our breakfast is cooking. Smiling like idiots while looking into each others eyes because we’re both just as happy as we could be on a Saturday morning. Time stopping as we hold each other and kiss, trapped in the beautifuly perfect moment.
