Federica Pettenon (@fede.creativa) is my pick for today’s talent!
If you don’t know what A Year on Talents is here you can find the description of the project: A Year on Talents Project
Federica is a watercolorist from Italy and much like me she started from the ground as a self-taught, following artists and learning from them. She quickly found her dimension focusing primarily on florals and landscapes (I love them both too!) and I find her abitude to include that little “misty” veil in her paintings is what makes them all look so beautiful and cohesive.
I appreciate a lot the fact that her IG profile is curated and every picture is perfectly reflecting how much she cares about her art. It’s not easy to find the angle you like, the light, the composition for the picture.. every single time. I know this for a fact so I immediately recognize it! It’s a pleasure to scroll through her delicate posts.
The first image of the edelweiss flower is really sweet I like it a lot, she even made a few different versions of it changing the palette (if there’s any still available those were all on her etsy shop, link below, but I’m not the only one who thinks they’re all gorgeous cause I saw many were already gone!). I love the care this painting seems to be talking about, it’s spreading its own delicacy.
The second painting is yet another subject Federica painted many times already, it’s the “Eremo di S.Bovo”. Nice and quiet place in the north-east of Italy. In this one the sunlight is truly amazing and captures the scene with the warm colors and the beautiful transition in the sky. I also like the path and the fence they look so real! Wonderful.
