Pastel toned, fairytale-like scenes by artist Paul Saari

In an age in which fantasy films are incredibly popular, you’d think we’ve seen it all thanks to computer graphics. Paul Saari, however, manages to blow us away with his amazing fantasy-inspired works made with a rather old school medium: oil paint.

The Canadian artist uses pastel tones and candy colors combined with his unique soft rendering style to depict surreal landscapes. They look as they’ve popped right out of a fairytale. But it’s the contrast between the light and dark that gets you. Saari pairs the soft colors with ominous weather conditions and shadows.
