We Are Completely Dazzled by These Watercolor Paintings

Karina Eibatova‘s richly colored depictions of raw minerals are wrought from watercolor paints, and oh my! How they dazzle! Our eyes can’t get enough of the Mineral Admiration collection, which looks good enough to eat.

The purples, blues, and pinks prominent in the Mineral series are highlighted with precise points of opaque white light on sharp angles. You can almost feel a personality conveyed in each crystal portrait.

The Russian-born Eibatova, also known as Eika, has an impressive design and illustration portfolio that includes work for clients like The New York Times, Atlantic Records, and Nylon.

Eika states she draws only “organic objects, landscapes, and the Universe” to express her love of nature.
