plein air pastel on pastelmat paper, 20×28 inches, 2013

I am a Russian oil painter, working plein air in oil and oil pastels. I was immensely influenced by French and American impressionists, Monet, Renoir, Hassam, Roninson, Cassat, Henry Hensche. I took classes with Lois Griffel, former director of Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown, MA, USA in 2001. Since then i have been working plein air doing landscapes and outdoor still life. My works are in colletions in Russia, Canada, Italy and USA.

    Great feeling of grandeur, especially like the size of the white reflective structures through the valley. Very nicely done Julia.

  • Thanks Jim, i dont usually do big pastels now, mostly big oils. But it is still a challenge
