Ukrainian textile artist Ludmila Perevalova stitch colorful embroidery designs that resemble landscape paintings inspired by impressionist masters like Claude Monet. Each colorful design captures the beauty of the artwork it is based on, as well as the vibrant energy of nature.
Perevalova first learned to embroider from her mother when she was a child. Now that she is retired, she spends time perfecting her craft every day and her hard work certainly shows. Each embroidery design features a combination of long and short stitches in a variety of colors to produce the same qualities as expressive brush strokes.
Much like the Impressionists who influence her work, Perevalova draws inspiration from the surrounding nature. She says: “I live by the sea at home with a small flower garden, which every day gives me inspiration to create products.” Although she often creates her own designs, many of her works are based on famous paintings. For a design, Perevalova reinvents Monet’s design The undergrowth of the Saint-Germain forest (1882) in wire. Showcasing a mixture of colorful hues, its dots resemble stippled oil paint on a canvas. Another piece is inspired by Ushant Island by Henri Moret. Perevalova renders the pretty seascape in countless overlapping dots to achieve the effect of speckled sunlight.
