Emotionally Evocative Watercolor Paintings by Agnes-Cecile

The Italian artist Silvia Pelissero, better known as agnes-cecile, primarily creates emotionally evocative watercolor paintings.  Though completing some art classes while in high school, Pelissero is largely self-taught.  Through her work and experimentation she has developed a particularly whispy yet moody watercolor style.  Her subjects seem to emerge out of subtle stains and promptly fade back into the paper as if viewed through a thick fog.  Pelissero also captures a certain subtlety of emotion.  Strong but restrained feeling appears to lurk just behind many of her portrait's eyes, a certain understatedness that pairs well with her medium. See more of her paintings after the jump.
