Alexander Popov is a true master. He created magnificent portraits and colorful landscapes.
Before the viewer appears Russian nature in all its glory. We see a country road running into the distance. On the left is a bench on which you can sit to enjoy the cleanest air. On a hot summer day it is so nice to relax in the shade and listen to the birds singing.
The artist uses all kinds of shades of green. The landscape he painted is as vibrant as possible. It seems that now a light breeze will blow and the crowns of the trees will sway. Juicy green, yellowish-green and brown shades give the whole picture a special liveliness.
The artist does not just portray nature. We feel that he loves her and is trying to convey to the audience his attitude towards her.
Each blade of grass is spelled out as clearly as possible. The leaves and branches of trees are incredibly embossed. The impression is a certain photographic. But at the same time the landscape is so perfect that it seems fabulous.
The artist seeks to convey every detail as brightly and clearly as possible. They are all significant. Not everyone can see the charm of Russian nature. Only a great master who skillfully uses a brush can do this.
Summer sky merges on the horizon with lush green hills. It is light blue. The clouds are invisible, only a small white haze is guessed, which gives a special airiness to the whole space.
In the painting of Popov, a bizarre play of light and shadow is created. We do not see the sun itself, but it gently warms the earth, illuminating the grass and trees with a golden light. The artist did not use gloomy colors. All shades are as cheerful and vibrant as possible. The audience creates a joyful mood. So I want to go to this quiet corner of nature. It seems that you only need to take a step to get there, in the pleasant shade of a warm summer day.
