Traditional Water Colour Medical Illustrations

As part of our services we provide medical art in the traditional mediums as we know that water colour has a real part to play when producing medical illustration, even in modern day medical communications and technologies. We feel it has a lot to offer as the medium has wonderful aesthetic qualities and resulting artwork can be engaging and intricate.

So Why Choose Water Colour

Water colour as a medium can work out to be exceptionally suited to anatomy projects. For example, its particularly effective when its used to illustrate difficult pathology subjects as it manages to diffuse any gory anatomy detail into something a patient can observe without fear. Medical art produced in water colour can achieve a sensitive portrayal of anatomy and pathology such as tumours on the female breast or genital organs. This is so much better than a photograph on the same subject!

Our medical art in water colour has been used for hospital wall art for a new hospital development, as water colour paintings specifically for the journal covers for the BDJ, as water colour illustrations for publishing subjects such as reproductive anatomy regarding hysterectomy, function and disease.

The purpose ultimately is for these medical illustrations to play a part in patient education, to portray human subjects anatomy that are precise and attractive that can help improve the effectiveness of written medical communications. The way we create our medical illustration in water colour is to inform and engage the viewer and the use of water colour as a medium does this very well.

What’s Our Process

As anatomy artists our goal is to create paintings and medical illustrations to make the anatomy and pathology look precise, unique, ‘real’ looking. Sketching the subject matter in pencil first, they are completed as water colour paintings using the finest sable brushes, hot press water colour paper stretched over a board and the finest brand of water colour paint.

We are professionally trained in water colour yet we also readily combine the artwork with digital media. Simply by scanning the artwork at a high resolution allows us to save as a jpeg file and have a format ready to use within any type of marketing materials. Such as printing, publishing, leaflets, posters, websites, even incorporated into an animation. Showing that the versatility of water colour as a medium is equal to any other digital medium where it can be incorporated into any format for the final project. This process allows Joanna to give the client the maximum choice when requesting something exceptional.
