 There is nothing more natural and intuitively beautiful than the human form. This is why the most recognized paintings in history are portraits, more often than not, think "the Mona Lisa", "the Girl with a Pearl Earring", "the Birth of Venus", and "the Kiss". Portraits capture one’s attention like no other type of painting, if they’re good, that is. And boy the portraits we’re about to show you are good, so realistic and meticulously-detailed it seems like they’re about to jump out of the screen and come to life.
These 16 images and live painting videos were created by Belarusian artist Daria Callie, who marries abstraction and realism together in a unique style that will simply leave you speechless. We feature only some of our favorite works in this article, but you can see more of Daria’s works by visiting her Instagram or YouTube page.

2. Untitled

The artist intentionally uses soft pastel colors that would complement the natural features of her subjects. This harmonious color scheme creates an atmosphere of serenity that soothes and calms the viewer.

4. Untitled

As you can see in her video tutorials, the artist works primarily with oil paints off a glass palette. This technique allows her to superimpose colors in semi transparent layers, creating incredible dimension. You can see this layering technique in action in the painting and video below.
