Capturing the dream-like quality of a gorgeous cityscape, painter Elena Romanova uses splashes of color for an otherworldly effect in her skyline art series.

Well-known landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower, connect these stunning landscape paintings to the real world, enchanting viewers with their vibrantly surreal, yet still identifiable silhouettes. Using runny watercolors, the artist lets the paints bleed into each other and drip down the canvas in a unified rainbow, which looks pristine on top and like it's melting along the bottom. Less detailed than a photograph, these landscapes are somehow more enticing in their obscurity.
