Since 2012 Julia works in watercolor technique, combining the classical school with her own exclusive methods.
She is inspired by trips to the fishing villages and the largest port cities of America, Europe and Russia, by each and every picture from her travels. Julia has begun her most famous series of watercolors "Islands in the Stream", dedicated to the play (interplay) of light and color on the water surface and to the structure and configuration of the ships, boats and yachts. She paints evocative images of port cities where she has been to.
Another one artist’s favorite subjects to paint are bicycles, flowers, textured sketches and gothic architecture.
