MY NAME IS INNA NAGAYTSEVA AND I HAVE A BIG LOVE FOR WATERCOLOUR AND THE NORTH.
I have always loved to draw, but I started to seriously engage in this activity in 2017. After trying various materials such as acrylic, ink, markers, I was presented with an old set of the Neva palette of 24 colors and I decided to try watercolour. After that, my life turned upside down and I fell in love with this material and decided to conquer it in my favorite ways.
After many lessons, trial and error, I finally tamed this complex material and began to find my way in the watercolour world, painting different pictures, from flowers to portraits. And somehow unexpectedly my pictures became cold and Northern.
I have always been attracted by the majestic landscapes of Scandinavia, the fishing houses on the shores of the North Seas and the inhabitants of cold waters.
In my watercolors, I try to convey the power and beauty of the most picturesque places for me. They symbolize silence and tranquility, they move consciousness to where the soul connects with nature, which for me, as an artist, is a very important factor in the development of a person.
My paintings are in private collections in the USA, Mexico, Iceland, Germany, Canada, South Korea, Poland, Vietnam, Spain, France, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Lithuania and Finland.
