For some, rainy days provide the perfect ambiance for creative pursuits. Artist Luiza Niechoda combines the serenity of raindrops with natural landscapes in her series of watercolor paintings. Called Rain-Kissed Windows, this project portrays various windowpanes that have been dotted with raindrops from a recent storm.
As a landscape artist, Niechoda depicts natural scenes in the series. By using the light and transparent medium of watercolor, she is able to simulate a foggy window—where trees, mountains, forests, and skies all appear to be shrouded in mist. Then, she deliberately places realistic raindrops atop these compositions. While some look as though they have freshly landed on the “window,” others have already linked into watery streams that run down the page.
No painting is complete, however, until Niechoda adds the custom wooden frame. These structures include horizontal and vertical dividers to mimic a real window, thereby completing the artist's watercolor illusion. Niechoda's Rain-Kissed Windows will be available for purchase starting March 11, 2020 via her online store. You can also follow the artist on Instagram to keep up to date with her latest creations.
