There are many noteworthy components that go into these Lucy Evans illustrations. Most prominent are the realistic renderings of women drawn in black and white. Interestingly, Evans defines value on the skin and hair of her subjects, but often leaves clothing in the line drawing stage, creating contrast that accentuates the beauty of her women. She then adds splashes of color using watercolors that either depict objects and animals or are seemingly smeared in a random manner. The sum of all these elements is pictures that are visually distinctive and induce a dream-like euphoria within its viewers.

In Lucy Evans’ ‘Florence Series,’ her subjects are also captured mid-motion, adding a dynamic dimension to her pieces whilst simultaneously demonstrating her technical capabilities as an artist.
