Fagan has painted plein air on the beaches near her home in Mathews County, Virginia for twenty years.
Plein air painting began in the late 1800s when artists first started taking their easels out of the studio to paint in natural sunlight. Fagan's studio is filled with sunlight, as she paints in a 30 foot sunroom with skylights footsteps from the water.
Expressionist Color Fulfills Passion
Using colors direct from the tube, mixing them on the canvas directly, Fagan draws her style from years of painting with pastels. Pure pigments of intense color, pastels are characterized by the addition of white pigment. This slightly whitened appearance gives the the reputation of being muted, or light in color. Fagan's painting, however, are anything but!
Direct Pigment Application
Whether applied with paint brush or palette knife, Fagan's style of strong calligraphic strokes evokes passion in the viewer. Stand in front of one of her paintings, and she hopes you will, 'feel your heart sing!'
