[Dollface]…”Botanica” by Melissa Haslam

These paintings from artist Melissa Haslam’s “Botanica” collection are just beautiful to me. I like them because they’re sort of dark and gothic, but really ethereal and dainty. The eyes of the girls in these paintings are just so vibrant…I’ve read that painting eyes is one of the most difficult techniques to master – and I think Haslam certainly has. Be sure to check out her site for more…there is some really great art there.
