Russian artist Vera Shimunia has truly mastered the art of embroidery painting. Instead of using paints to create masterful landscapes, Vera uses her embroidery skills to create intricate scenes that have to be seen to be believed.

Using a vast array of colors, the richly textured works seem to jump out of the canvas, depicting big skies, deep blue seas, and the autumnal forest in a variety of sizes. Embroidery art is really pushing the boundaries of creativity at the moment, particularly in Russia. You can see more from a previous post here.

Why the clearly photoshopped sky? It deserves better than that
