9 Pastel Pieces Inspired By Leisurely, Dreamlike Art

ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN | BY | January 30, 2018

Sun, sand, water and nature influence South African artist Kirsten Beets’ work. In Staring at the Sun (shown), Beets takes her interest in examining the way people interact with the great outdoors to all new heights, literally. Rendering it from a sweeping overhead vantage point, the artist brings a day at the beach to life with oil paint on paper–capturing nostalgia-rich details and colors that make the piece feel less like art and more like a beautiful memory. Her sun-kissed depiction of leisure influenced our selection of dreamlike pieces here.
