MARIA OPPELLI OPPELT nee RUDEŽ

The hobby artist style is evident in the work of Maria Oppelt Oppeli. Her dedication to creating artworks together with a serious approach to her work is apparent in Oppelli’s representations of landscapes and serious engagement with depiction of figures. The selection of appropriate colours not only expresses the artist’s temperament but also contributes to great drawings and assists in resolving compositional dilemmas.
