I am extremely passionate about my work, I have been drawing ever since I remember. I pride myself on my customer service and attention to detail. Each portrait I produce is a one-of-a-kind portrait that my clients can treasure for many years to come. My portraits are traditionally hand-drawn using the very best materials and different watercolor painting techniques.
I like to work very closely with my customers and I am not happy until you are 100% satisfied with your unique portrait. I use my customers' photos to draw from, and I ask them to provide a selection to generate a true likeness with the finished portrait.
PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS - My aim when producing your portrait is to create a drawing that you can treasure for many years to come. To do this, one of the most important things in commissioning your portrait is to ensure I can work from a good photograph. I cannot emphasize enough that 'the better the photo, the better the finished portrait'. I sadly have to turn away many photographs because of issues with quality, but don't worry - I am here to help you get the best photograph possible and give you as much advice as you need.
LEVELS - Take the photo at eye level with your pet. Photos looking down on your pet look unflattering and unnatural to the eye. The best angles are with your pet looking straight at you or with their head slightly tilted to one side looking past the camera.
QUALITY - The very first thing I look for in a photograph is the quality. As a highly detailed pencil artist I am attracted to detail like a bee to honey, so the more detail in a photo the better your portrait will be. This is especially important for your pet's key features such as their eyes and nose. It is highly important that the photo is sharp and in focus. Sadly, I am unable to work from blurry photos.
LIGHTING - Take your pet's photo in natural light, preferably outdoors. The best time is on a bright overcast day but not in direct sunlight as this can cast some unflattering images. Turn Flash 'OFF' - Please NEVER use flash. Flash causes a number of problems and looks very unflattering. It often masks out a lot of detail, causes unnatural shadows and colors, and can often result in the dreaded red-eye or eye-glowing effect.
As a professional artist, it is important to use the highest quality art materials available so that my portraits can last through generations. For my colored portraits, I use a mixed selection of paints and pencils for the best color palette and use of light-fast materials; I use Winsor & Newton paints, Faber Castell Polychromos, Prismacolor Premiers, Caran D'Ache Luminance 6901, and Derwent Studio pencils. I also sometimes use Caran D'Ache Neocolor II as an underpainting for the start of a portrait. The pencils I use are archival, with the highest degrees of lightfastness. My graphite portraits are created using Faber-Castell 9000 pencils and Derwent Graphic Pencils. The paper I use is French Arches Aquarelle and Italian Fabriano artistico/classico 260gsm hot pressed paper which is acid-free and archival museum-rated.
So happy with the two pictures! Got two 24x36 pics and they are so life-like! I was impressed. Rarely are purchases even better than I could hope for!
I loved the portrait! Atina did an amazing job!
Our pup passed away at only 2 years old in a freak accident and we wanted something special to remember him by. The painting turned out absolutely amazing and captured his loving personality well. It came framed and is sitting on our wall table so we can see him every day.
