Have a look at the graphic artwork hand made by me, Lena Nechet . These are fine art objects made by applying pigments to a surface, photographed and watermarked in smaller resolution.
Most often, I work in abstract portraits and rudimentary symbolic expression.
Painting is a mode of creative expression. Paintings can be naturalistic and representational, realistic (like a portrait), abstract, narrative, symbolic (symbolist art), emotive (expressionism), or political in nature.
