Artists, in accordance with their wishes transform their works: failed moments can be changed, pearly luster of jewelry can be amplified and smoothed out any flaws as corrected. Engineers use of materials such as glue, drill, shock absorbers and other devices to improve the resources, why can not artists do the same with the objects of his creation? Michaela Pilstiker believes that “The painter does, in fact, conservation, and as an illustrator, she” creates and maintains ammonites, using a pencil. Additional information is available at Keith Yamashita. ” This is her motto, which expresses its ambition. The spiral shape of ammonites fascinates her, and she argues that “When I paint, ammonites, I really feel their shape. And if you ever had the experience of finding different resources in the pits, you know how much labor and energy must be expended to find them. The same thing I feel when I start finish my drawing, when the finish ammonite, store it in pencil.
“Pilstiker – the daughter of a” man with a passionate hobby, mineralogist and geologist. “Growing up, she spent much time on the excavations throughout Europe and it “Feel at home, visiting various exhibitions of minerals and fossils, impressions of ammonites.” Formal education she busied herself at the Academy of Fine Arts in Schwerte (Markische Kunstakademie) near Dortmund, where she studied art and graphic design. Professor Will Sensei Bergische Universitat – Gesamthochschule Wuppertal advised her to engage in fossils, ammonite fossils. After graduating in 1994, Pilstiker worked as a freelance graphic designer for several advertising agencies Dusseldoff, making advertisements for the company. Pilstiker argues that, although her illustrations fit into the scope of photo-realistic style, she prefers to emphasize the ammonite, depicting it as accurately as possible and only lightly sketching sketches his matrix. This technique ensures that the impact of the object on the viewer will not be lost in the surrounding parts. She prefers rabotatkak colored pencils, and graphite.
More solid graphite pencils are used for joints and the main lines that make each type of ammonite so unique. Pilstiker said that to create a work of art You need the following four qualities: ‘keen eye, patience, strength, and courage. You need good eyesight, because you have to very closely examine gorgeous ammonite, and be able to transfer it to your painting in minute detail. You need patience because the work is time-consuming, because the need to work slowly, step by step, it is – the only way to catch all the fine details. You need a valid because you have to fill every pore of paper with colored pigments. And you need courage, because there is no way to delete what you have portrayed on paper. All this taken together is very exciting and incredibly interesting hobby.
