BIOGRAPHY

Danguole is an award-winning artist from Lithuania who focuses on hyper realistic animal portraits.
She grew up in Vilnius, Lithuania, and being surrounded by beautiful northern European wilderness has provided her a deep appreciation for nature and animals, which has grown to become the basis of her artistic aspiration.
With experience from decades of training, breeding, judging dogs as an FCI Judge, and keeping other animals, she draws upon her understanding of animal psychology as well as anatomy to produce art that captures and embeds animal’s emotions into the art piece, and puts animals under the same spotlight that is usually reserved to humans, within her artwork the animal is the only subject and focus of the story.
Danguole has lifelong experience as an artist, with skill ranging from academic art to impressionistic oil painting, and after producing hundreds of pencil drawings and paintings of landscapes, animals and humans, she eventually found and developed a rare technique which perfectly aligns with her artistic desire to portray animals deeply, accurately and efficiently.
The said technique is applying oil on paper using a dry paint brush. Having mastered this technique Danguole has gained a liberating amount of control over the intensity of shading and ability to add as much detail as she desires.
She works layer after layer, until her artistic vision is fulfilled, and the result is art with distinct tonal gradation, hyper realistic detail and contrast that makes the painting hard to distinguish from a photograph, enthralling many artists and collectors from various and even opposing backgrounds.

Alongside all of her accomplishments, Danguole has been fighting cancer for 13 years and despite undergoing brain surgery in 2016, she continues to paint and express herself artistically with relentless motivation, hoping that she can serve as inspiration for others to take life’s difficulties head-on and persist on realizing themselves and their visions.

TECHNIQUE

Oil painting on paper. Dry brush technique.
Oil dry brush is a painting technique where a paint brush is relatively dry but still holds paint. A very thin layer of color is applied to a paper.
Dry brush is layered layer after layer and reworked with an eraser, at this point it is possible to incorporate different lighting effects and details. Images painted with a dry brush appear very similar to a photo.
