Ann Solyst

The whimsical animals Ann draws look quite natural. She begins with a simple yet precise outline in charcoal on toned paper. Next, Ann blocks in basic colors in pastel, meticulously refining her drawings through multiple layers until her animals look realistic but not stiff. Her sensitive style and subdued palette suggest wildlife illustration, not fantasy drawing, and it takes a second look to notice the fantastic hidden among the regular.
