1/19/15: Remember Lorraine Loots and the Very Young Eyes? Well, we weren’t the only ones charmed by her beautiful diminutive works. Her adorable mini-painting-every-day project has inspired another very talented artist to do her own 365-day tiny painting project, with similarly darling results.

Moscow-based scientific illustrator Elena Limkina is enjoying stepping outside her usual technical drawings to explore her softer side. Her tiny watercolors and pencil drawings are really lovely, and while she was inspired by Lorraine Loots, her work definitely has its own voice. Here’s a quick side-by-side comparison, then the rest are all Limkina’s works!

You can follow Elena Limkina on her website and on Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook.

  2. All of them are cute. Artichoke is one of my favorite foods. I don’t think that have “Bird of Paradise” in Moscow but that also was fun. Hal
