    About Me

    Elena Romanova - Pet Portrait Artist


    !

    dd ear friends, welcome to my website for quality pet portraits from photos, all traditionally hand painted in pencil, watercolor, oil or pastel. A painting should evoke a thought, a memory or idea to the viewer, that`s why I`m so in love with this art. Every painted portrait is a very special way of celebrating the pet-owner relationship, their affection and love. I love the challenge of capturing  characters in my paintings, always endeavouring to keep the work feeling fresh, passionate and spontaneous.

    Something about me? Well… Shortly before my thirties, but already with more than 18 individual expositions in one of the best art galleries all over the world. I have worked in the field of art for all my professional life, completely devoted, with more than 10 years of experience. Lucky enough to learn from the best artists and to be student in one of the most famous and prestigious art schools in my home town Moscow and the art capital of Europe – Paris, an inspirational experience for a lifetime.

    Bringing animals to life on canvas or paper is my real passion. The most rewarding feeling for me is a happy customer, this glimmer of happiness while opening the package.

    Thank you for visiting 7portraits.com! Enjoy!

    My Studio

    My Studio

    Art is performance, melody, emotion!

    My Studio
    My Studio
    where I feel free and inspired

    My new studio is all set up! All these years I developed my unique recognizable style, always working with beautiful music put on, usually surrounded by my beloved ones. While I create my portraits I love to have cup of fine tea or hot foamy capuccino.

    My studio is spacious and cosy, with beautiful natural light, pet-free, odour free and smoke-free.

    Love each part of the creating process, it brings me such joy and happiness!

    My Inspiration
    My Inspiration
    my sources of creative power

    My inspiration is in all sort of sources – nature, travelling, simple small everyday things, my family, people in the street, books, movies. Newborn baby animals, summer rain on the beach or romantic brunch on my terrace… these are my small magical moments.

    A detailed high-quality pet portrait is much more meaningful than any photo could ever be, it shows your pet personality, appearance, character, expression, movement, it always revokes sweet memories. Here in my studio I will create the best Pet Portrait for you!

    My Passion
    My Passion
    art is my life

    Art is a performance, a melody, an emotion, I do refuse to accept it simply as working routine.

    Art is my passion!

    Bringing animals to life on canvas is a real challenge!

    I choose very carefully the art materials I work with. They are the basis of each portrait and work of art. The right brushes, the best oil colors and canvas, well known paper, crayons and pencil. In my studio I have all I need to create the next piece of art. I make portraits that lasts for generations!

    Watercoloris one of the oldest mediums used in painting. It is used as a basic technique in many genres from classical to abstract. Today is not particularly common in portraiture because of its complexity of application and its implementation, but is highly valued exactly for these reasons. Watercolor brings depth and makes the image multilayered, leaving it at the same time soft and lightweight. It is applicable for almost all interiors; it is recommendable to arrange it framed with mount behind anti-glare glass. Essential for this type of painting is the quality of the materials, which is why I use a special watercolor paper from the best manufacturers, paints of the professional series “Winsor and Newton” and brushes “Kolinsky”. 
    Oilis the most popular painting medium in Pet Portraits. The oil is preferred by those who want to give intensity and aristocratic spiritto the portrait. Fits in any decor, but definitely it looks better with heavy furniture, rustic, gothic, baroque or any other classical style from the past. Suitable for oil portraits are heavy frames in gold and silver, richly decorated with ornaments. The creativeprocess of oil painting is long and passes through several stages, in order to obtain the desired result. Sometimes it takes weeks. Essential for this type of painting is the quality of the materials, which is why I use professional series paints “Winsor and Newton” and brushes “Kolinsky”.  
    Pencilis classic and very popular medium in portrait drawing. Preferred by people who would like to get both light and stylish accent in your interior that does not intrude, but to be noticed. Pencil portraits have special combination of monochrome elegancy and depth of image. Suitable for any interior. It looks best in lightweight frame with mount behind anti-glare glass. My pencil portraits are combination of pencils with different density, carbon and graphite powder on top-quality Italian paper. My style of drawing with pencil is unique, built for many years of hard work and study.
    Pastelis easy and fast medium to create portraits. You can use different colors of paper depending on the desired interior effect and fur colors of the pet to achieve contrast. Preferred by people with a small budget or those who need to get quickly his portrait. Suitable for a wide variety of interiors. Looks best in light frame and with mount behind  anti-glare glass. My pastel portraits are sprayed with fixative and may be used in combination with more budget framing options.
