Point Vicente Lighthouse in Palos Verdes, California is on a beautiful stretch of coastline. It has a dramatic history and gorgeous surrounding panoramic views. Tatyana painted a small plein air study to capture the light, and then used it as reference to create this larger studio piece. She accentuated the rough surface of the cliffs with confident brushstrokes and thick layers of color while employing a delicate technique to capture the soft movement of the clouds high overhead. Subtle reflection in the water builds a richness and depth in the piece.

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.
