Description of the Artwork “Hug”

Oil painting on watercolor paper of playing cats. Drybrush technique. Oil drybrush is a painting technique where a paintbrush is relatively dry but still holds paint. A very thin layer of color is applied to a paper. Drybrush 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 drybrush appear very similar to a photo.

Danguole's works are owned by collectors around the world and have been featured in international publications.

We see the work of thousands of artists each year, but Danguole creates masterful, haunting pieces which stick in one's mind forever."
