An inviting impressionist seascape, with wonderful amounts of detail in the legs of the pier and strolling people. Violet clouds overhead give way to gently rolling waves. "Surrounded by the ocean, hearty breezes often blow on these windows on the world," Tatyana expresses with a smile. "Everything is so amplified on a pier, from the smell of the ocean to the sight of seagulls swooping by as fisherman clean their catch in the basins. Surfers enjoy the break here, too, but the wide sandy beach is attractive for just about any activity. The next time you’re visiting the coast, take time to stroll on the pier. It’s one of the most enjoyable activities around."
Fair Oaks, California
Artist Tatyana Fogarty displays the intricacies of nature with her impressionist landscapes of Central California's coast. Her interest in painting nature was born out of her admiration for the 19th-century Russian artist Ivan Aivazovsky's dramatic marine scenes. As a plein air artist, Tatyana finds an inspirational location, uses all of her senses to interpret a scene, and creates a study with oil on canvas. "I do not generally touch-up my plein air pieces, preferring to preserve the immediacy and honesty of painting on location." Fogarty enjoys listening to everything from Tchaikovsky to Creedence Clearwater Revival during her creative process. When she is not painting, you can find her at operas and ballets, traveling the world, or listening to audiobooks in her woodland studio. Tatyana's creations have been showcased at galleries in California, New York, and The Southwest Art Magazine. Fogarty is a Signature member of The American Impressionist Society.
