If you've always dreamed of making it all the way to the pristine Maldives for the holiday of a lifetime -- with its beautifully stretched-out sunny day and lapping blue waves -- then treat yourself to the second best alternative: a large-scale photorealistic Maldives drawings series.

Known for her incredible landscape and pastel artwork, artist Zaria Forman does it again, but this times she leaves the ice-filled peaks of Greenland behind and takes on the gently frothy waves of the azure blue waters of the Maldives.

Spending a month in the nature-filled haven, Forman worked on her Maldives drawings series because she was both inspired and worried by the rising sea levels there -- Maldives is the lowest-lying country in the world -- due to climate change.
