Natalia paints her landscapes and abstracts of local scenes from city to country using various colour combinations in acrylic, creating their own unique character and atmosphere.
She chooses what to paint by listening to her inner voice, almost immediately choosing something that strikes and attracts her by its look and colours. It could be any scene or subject, she just knows she wants to paint it and enjoy the process of discovery painting allows her. She is thrilled to see the finished painting. It is very exciting for her to start the painting, go through the process and see what happens when the painting is completed.
Natalia admires lots of artists, old greats and modern artists. The impressionist style is her favourite. Self taught she studies art and artists all the time by herself. She is especially inspired by the French Impressionists Claude Monet - her most favourite, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. She loves the New Zealand artists Lance O'Gorman, a Neo-impressionist who also paints in different styles and colours, and Grahame Sydney for his sense of space. She is also inspired by the Russian modern artist Vladimir Volegov because he paints portraits and scenes in great impressionist style with an impressive play of light and shade.
Her favourite subjects are landscapes, abstracts, portraits of people and animals. Her subjects are diverse, what she enjoys painting depends on her mood. On exhibition here, are more than 40 works showcasing landscapes, and abstracts inspired by nature.
