portrait http://design.org/tags/portrait en Meticulous Gem Paintings by Carly Waito http://design.org/blog/meticulous-gem-paintings-carly-waito <p>When I first saw the work of <a href="http://www.carlywaito.com/blog/" target="Carly Waito">Carly Waito</a>, I thought I was looking at meticulously lit and photographed gems. The colors and reflections are beautiful, and the whole piece works to highlight the unique characteristics of each specimen. Needless to say, when I learned her mineral portraits were actually oil paintings, I was blown away. </p> <p>These are absolutely stunning.

The 26-year-old French artist began doing street art with his friends at 17 and later transitioned to painting murals and other works. </p> <p>He became bored of the structure, repetition and perfection and took a decidedly more forceful approach to art, resulting in these portraits that are ripe with emotion and intensity. My favorites are his snapshot-like works from his faces and portraits series. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd">
