Russian artist Natalia Vasilyeva is specialized in portrait and illustration. Using watercolor pencils and pastel on A4 size archive paper, she draws amazing portraits of women and children. She is outstanding with her unique style for transfering reference photos into realistic illustrations. It takes her approximately 12 hours to draw each painting. You can see some of her process videos on her Instagram feed. Although she puts some makeup items beside her drawings and some of her paints look like foundation, blush, etc, she only uses panpastel for painting those flawless portraits. Just have a look at some of Vasilyeva’s exceptional artwork.
