Miranda Lorikeet Creates Art Using Only MS Paint

Artist Miranda Lorikeet, who goes by 'Lazy Bones' on Tumblr, creates gorgeous landscapes, portraits and abstractions using MS Paint.

Lorikeet, who is an HR assistant by day, prefers to keep her art simple (evidenced by her decision to use MS paint), to the extent that her work has a childlike essence to it. Preferring to use bright, pastel colors, Lorikeet also creates a playful undertone to each image.

As for her artistic process, that, too, is very simple. Lorikeet simply picks a photo for visual reference, then draws a skeleton of it on MS paint and fills it in with the desired colors. The application's limited tools (fill, copy, paste) are used to add texture to the images.
