Maja Wronska

These are the colorful, rich, wonderfully architectural watercolors by Polish painter Maja Wronska. While it’s no secret that I’m in love with all things architecture, and certainly, her compositions are flawless, it’s really her unexpected angles that caught and kept my attention. It’s like they’re painted from unexpectedly good snapshots taken by tourists.

I like how the buildings are clearly the stars of the show and most of the people are left unpainted so they recede. The effect gives lovely depth to Wronska’s already incredibly detailed and skilled paintings.

Her work is available in a number of intriguing formats – not just prints, but also phone cases, tote bags, even shower curtains and towels. They can be purchased on Society6.

  3. Wow! I am so impressed by the precision of her painting. Watercolour can be quite tricky to handle at times but I love and admire her precision and the way she has kept the clean negative spaces to define the shapes and angles in her work. Love the way she handles the light too.

  4. I love these, especially the paintings with a splash of color, like the winter scene and the ones with red umbrellas.
