about this painting:
An oasis in the woods
There is always something captivating about landscapes: starry sky beckoning us with hundreds of silver lights, age-old forests filled with mysterious rustle of leaves, serene valleys carpeted with unmown grass and fabulous flowers begging for you to smell them… This one takes us to a quiet autumn wood where a lovely stream starts its way meandering between the trees. Its soothing murmur and icy breath scatter the stillness of the forest and fill it with sounds of life. After walking many miles along the bumpy path, you can sit on the sunny bank, stretch your tired legs and turn off the flow of thoughts in your head listening to the endless song of water.
Look at the way the artist depicted this delicate scenery. Every hue, every stroke is selected with great care, the paints are laid down gently, as if an abrupt move could have disturbed the magic of the moment. For each plane of his picture, he uses a peculiar set of techniques:
· The green hues of the foreground gradually transition into the orange palette of the middle ground and further into the muted blue of the background creating a soft autumn ambience.
· The grass and the water are depicted very precisely, with a high level of detail, while the tree leaves are just colorful dabs of paint. In the distance, we can only see a bluish-grey wall of trees blurred by the aerial perspective.
· The S-shaped stream included in the composition invites us to follow its direction and proceed deeper into this charming autumn forest to see what else it has in store for us.
