Watercolor Enchantment


I have always loved the striking beauty of watercolor painting or aquarelle as it is named in French. I also have great admiration for the people who have the talent of creating dreamy images with a few strokes of pencil and transparent touches of color.

I am so entranced by watercolor paintings that I even cherish the (crazy) dream of one day owning the famous collection of paintings produced by French artist Eugène Delacroix during his well-documented trip to Morocco in 1832.

But since this particular dream is not about to happen, I have decided to scout the web for some more beautiful and affordable paintings to complete my bedroom decor. After a long search, I have finally found some wonderful images, which will fit perfectly with the boudoir atmosphere that I am trying to put together.

Aren't these watercolors breathtaking or what? I just love how they exude femininity and how luminous and fluid they are. These inspirational paintings are from the gifted and prolific illustrator Jessica Durrant. You can discover her artwork on her website and also on her Etsy store.  Are you also a fan?
