Entitled 'Antler', 'Hare' and 'Nymph', these striking illustrations by visual artist Carol Farrell pay homage to symbolic animal inspirations. Depicting a series of three portraits, the artist captures beautiful female subjects and superimposes her life drawings with animalistic imagery like antlers, rabbit ears and bull horns. The artist's works explore mythical contexts and symbolic literary themes.
Embodied in a bold aesthetic that can only be described as 'humanimal', these gorgeous illustrated art works by Carol Farrell reinvent a traditional colored pencil medium.
Mixing her signature brand of fashion illustration along with animalistic elements, these painted portraits feature free form figure depictions. Moreover, the lined drawings are then colored in and blended, adding to their lifelike aesthetic and heightened elements of photo realism.
