Fractal images enjoy a great deal of abstraction and are very wonderful and out of expectation for observers. These mathematical paintings are clear exposures of complexity, all-scale features and self similarity which are presented simultaneously and provide unique views. On the other hand, fractals are representations of the nature behaviors and rise from nature. Therefore, it must be possible to use these fractal properties and images in the creation of natural and realistic phenomena and landscapes. In this article, I am going to briefly explain the way of creating an absolutely realistic painting, as real as nature landscapes, called Sea at the sunset only by means of Mandelbrot set.
