Olga built up the commission side of her work by painting landscapes, cityscapes, portraits and still life, exhibiting them at various venues. These were produced using a variety of media. Olga is currently holding art workshops, which provides several opportunities for people in their local community.
She said: “Graphics and colour give a person a huge resonance of emotion and creating their own picture, the artist goes through the living stages of these emotions by reflecting the topic they draw”.
Seascape is a favourite theme for many people. Join the Master Class, and together with Olga, you will get an extraordinary experience of painting the sea surf.

With the under-painting now dry, we will introduce more colour in the form of glazes. We’ll begin to develop the 3D form and shapes of the seascape by using a variety of tools, like brushes, pallet knives, and your own fingers, to introduce further texture and drama to the piece.
We will finally develop the 3D form and shapes of the waves and sky of the seascape. The final stage focuses on refining the tonal values, re-establishing the deepest shadows and increase the intensity of the highlights, whilst also picking out some finer details to complete the piece.
