plein air Unisom pastel on sand paper, 12×16 inches, 2010

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.

    Absolutely fabulous Julia. I love the loose way you have applied the pastel which gives the whole work so much ‘movement’. Love your style!
