Windows to the Soul – Pencil Portraits by Olga Melamory Larionova
Olga Melamory Larionova, a.k.a. FairyARTos, is a Russian artist whose realistic drawings put photographs to shame. She does most of her work with pens but her pencils are just as impressive, if not more so. Her drawings create a certain emotional pull within the viewers, urging them to look at her work a little longer. Such expressiveness from a a drawing is rare, and yet Olga consistently manages to re-create it in every one of her pieces.
