MARINA AND ANNALISA DURANTE We are specialized in naturalistic, scientific and architectural illustrations for children and adults. We are twins, and live and work free-lance in Milan. We use various styles and techniques, realistic, poetic, funny, and we utilize a number of techniques like watercolors, acrylic, airbrush, black and white and photo-shop selecting the one that optimizes the result. We have a deep love and respect for nature and whenever possible we work directly in nature, otherwise we utilize our extensive library as reference. We love also to travel and discover nature and recently we worked for Galapagos National Park where we lived for one month drawing an ornithological guide-book collaborating with ornithologists of the park. Our clients include Italian and foreign publishing houses as well as museums.
