You can almost classify the work of Autumn Whitehurst as minimalistic. After all, aside from rendering her subjects’ faces in a highly realistic manner, she often uses silhouettes to fill in the missing attributes. This highly calculated design choice results in images that pop out at viewers because of the stark contrast between the detailed facial features set upon a near bare canvas.

Another defining quality of Autumn Whitehurst’s renderings is that they often depict subjects with near white complexions. Again, this minimal use of color allows Whitehurst to control where viewers’ eyes should go while looking at her illustrations. It also provides audiences with a surreal viewing experience.

Fans of these Autumn Whitehurst renderings may consider looking at her celebrity portraits, for which she employs a similar technique.
