Artists that inspire me: Silvia Pelissero

My planning this week isn't working out too well. Where DOES the time go!?

Well, this week's inspiring artist is a young lady whom I admire a lot.

Silvia Pelissero is probably better known as "agnes-cecile".

She is an Italian painter, only 21 yrs old, and incredibly talented.

I discovered her on deviantart a while ago, and am fascinated by her work.

 Isn't this gorgeous!?

She uses different techniques: watercolours, acrylics and oils, ink, and something she calls "drip paintings", made with varnish.

 She has a lot of videos on YouTube. Go have a look, it's mesmerizing, it really is.

All so different, and yet very recognizable as her own style.

I had a hard time choosing which pictures to put on my blog, she has a huge amount of work for someone so young

and it's all equally beautiful ....

Can you tell I'm completely smitten by her work ...?

If you go to her facebook page in the "about-section", you can find a lot more links to various shops and sites. And a massive amount of equally gorgeous artwork. Go go go, it's worth it! ☺

And now for something else: all of a sudden I've reached 100 followers! Incredible! Thanks to all of you, and welcome to my new followers. And as a token of my appreciation, I'm going to do a giveaway!
I'll tell you more about it in Friday's post ...

Hope you're all having a wonderful day / night! ♥
