The ability for paintings to appear lifelike is certainly a testament to the artistic talent of the artist, and likewise, these Barbara Cole 'Painted Ladies' pieces also exude immense artistic talent.

These pictures capture soft, feminine beauty and grace in a way that mimics the timeless nature of paintings. One of the most astounding revelations of the Barbara Cole 'Painted Ladies' photo series is how it was shot -- using entirely Polaroid film.

Popular website My Modern Metropolis quotes Cole in saying, "I fell in love with Polaroid film sometime late in 1987. I had been experimenting with the Polaroid Spectra camera and Tungsten light and I loved the mood that its warm colours and creamy palette evoked." These photographs are definitely ever-so-charming.
