Charming Fairy Tale Paintings on the Palm of a Hand

Want to catch a little beauty in the palm of your hand? Moscow-based artist and poet Svetlana Kolosova has figured out an adorable way to do just that with her fairy tale-based paintings, each one composed on her own left hand. The paintings, which we spotted over at Wave Avenue, reference classic works by Hans Christian Andersen and even William Shakespeare, and are remarkable in their level of detail — particularly considering they only last for a few hours before being washed away. See a few of our favorites after the jump.
