Hollywood Actresses Are Depicted in Breathtakingly Life-like Watercolor Portraits

Italian illustrator Davide Morettini is incredibly talented when it comes to depicting famous female stars in breathtakingly realistic watercolor portraits. These life-like images showcase profiles of world-famous actresses–including: Natalie Portman, Angelina Jolie, and Nicole Kidman–who are thoughtfully and serenely gazing off into the distance.

Morettini was able to painstakingly recreate the distinct bone structure and contours of these well-known faces within each portrait. His precise brushstrokes allow the facial angles and curves to stand out, while the use of watercolor adds a touch of softness that makes the paintings unique. The pieces not only appear to be remarkably three-dimensional, but they also demonstrate the ethereal beauty that can be conveyed through the medium of watercolor.
