Geometric Watercolors by Artist Jacob Van Loon (8 pics)

Recent Colorado transplant  Jacob van Loon  creates geometric watercolors that seem to visually reference abstract architectural renderings.

“I approach different gestures and tactile and haptic games. Through a merging of the banal and the forbidden I open up ways to see new perspectives on the depicted act and what is inherent to it. Simultaneously, my paintings are also a way of depicting a multilayered curiosity regarding the body and the flesh.m

Dreamy New Architectural Watercolors by Artist Sunga Park (7 pics)

Bangkok-based illustrator and graphic designer Sunga Park embraces the unpredictable nature of watercolors in her drippy depictions of architectural landmarks. In her extensive travels throughout Europe, Park stops to consider the finest details of Gothic cathedrals or the antennae-laden rooftops of residential streets in Croatia, but allows entire paintings to fade away into a wash of ghostly color. The mixture of detailed elements and watery abstraction results in hazy, dreamlike imagery that seems to constantly surprise and intrigue as if lifted directly from a memory..

Dreamy New Ink Paintings of Ghostly Felines and Chickens by Endre Penovac (10 pics)

Artist Endre Penovac (previously here and here ) depicts mysterious cats and ethereal roosters with a carefully perfected watercolor technique using diluted inks. Instead of trying to control his brushstrokes, Penovac seems to let the medium run amok across the canvas as it bleeds in every direction, and yet even these happy accidents result in precisely rendered paintings. Seen here is a collection of paintings from the last year or so, but you can see more originals and prints on Saatchi Art .

Old Books Transformed into Imaginative 3D Illustrations of Fairy Tale Scenes (7 pics)

Seattle-based artist Isobelle Ouzman  creates 3D illustrations from discarded books found in dumpsters, recycling bins, and local thrift stores. She adopts these forgotten books as a way to give them a second life, cutting and pasting the books into layered fairy tale scenes instead of letting the novels collect dust or fall prey to the elements. Ouzman creates her whimsical and monochromatic environments with an X-Acto knife, glue, watercolors and Micron pens.)

New Architectural Watercolors by Maja Wronska (10 pics)

We’ve long enjoyed the work of painter and architect  Maja Wronska ( previously ) who depicts unique vantages of architectural sites through detailed watercolors. Not only does Wronska capture these buildings in their entirety, but also focuses on the specific details of their construction and environment such as chandeliers that hang within an ancient church, or the pigeons found circling its exterior. These elements are all produced with an eye for how to capture the character of a space rather than just its aesthetic, imbuing her paintings with the rich history found within each location..
