An artist has created a series of hyper realistic finger paintings which look just like choppy seas, and spectacular icy landscapes.
Zaria Forman, 31, whose works take up to a month to complete, has created the landscapes to document the ever-changing beauty of regions affected by climate change.

Forman, from Brooklyn in New York, USA, led an Arctic expedition to the north west coast of Greenland purposely with the aim of creating art inspired by the dramatic geography.

The paintings are put on sale on her own personal site, ranging in price from £3,000 ($6,000) to £4,500 (around $9,000).

Her main focus is pictures of the ocean, with much of her art taking the form of pictures of sea spray on the shore, or water cascading over rocks or icebergs

In addition to exhibitions, recent projects include a series of drawings that served as the set design for the classic ballet Giselle, which premiered in October 2012 at the Grand Theatre of Geneva, Switzerland. Ten of the drawings were also used in the set design for House of Cards, a Netflix TV series directed by David Fincher and starring Kevin Spacey

Some of Forman's works of art look hyper-realistic, while others are more artistically vivid, but all of them revolve around the same theme

Sometimes the sea takes a backseat in focus to other parts of the picture, like the photo-realistic clouds, and the wind blowing spray into the air

Each of Forman's pictures are an attempt to capture a unique part of the landscape, where sometimes the icebergs and land masses are the focus, and other times they take a back seat to the ocean
