What most artists often avoid doing Marta Nael has perfected into her own distinct illustration style. Smears, splatters, splotches and rough edges do not frighten Nael, and she uses them in the rendering of these beautiful ladies. This demonstrates just how daring Nael is both as an artist and as a person, and for that she should be commended.

Also noteworthy about Marta Nael’s work is her use of color. Though she uses a barrage of seemingly random colors of various hues and saturation, she somehow manages to define value and lighting very accurately. The fact that she can paint such realistic looking women amidst the chaos of her compositions demonstrates how great this Spanish artist’s talent truly is.
