Beautiful Watercolor Paintings of European Landmarks

From San Marco Square in Venice to St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, Europe is home to some of the most beautiful architectural landmarks in the world. Using bright and beautiful pastel watercolors, artist Maja Wronska recreates a few of these landmarks and their picturesque surroundings.

The Poland-based artist is studying architecture at the Warsaw University of Technology. One of her previous requirements was to attend drawing drawing classes, and luckily for all of us, that inspired her to develop her artistic skills.

With regard to her process, Maja says that it all begins with an impulse to start drawing. She first uses pencils, then moves on to markers, and finally concludes her masterpieces with watercolor.
