Aivazovsky was a true master of landscape. Each of his paintings is a real discovery of the beauty of Russian nature.
Today we are all in a hurry somewhere and just do not have time to stop and notice the special charm of the world around us. The artist helps us to understand that true splendor is hidden in completely ordinary paintings.
Aivazovsky depicts winter nature. This is a real fairy tale. In the center of the picture is the road. It is still practically uncovered by snow. It can be assumed that this is early winter. There are trees on the sides of the road. They already managed to dress up in winter coats. Snow lies on each branch and gives the impression of a miracle.
Aivazovsky is a true master. With the help of skillful selection of flowers, he manages to convey the special beauty of winter. The fluffy snow is impressive. He covered the trees with whole caps woven from millions of snowflakes. If you think that for the winter landscape you need mostly white, then you are mistaken.
The artist uses shades of white, gray, blue, pinkish and even black in his painting. As a result, he manages to convey the special charm of nature and ringing silence. His canvas is incredibly vibrant. It seems, just a moment, and we will feel the breath of the winter wind and hear the rustling of the forest.
Two are walking along the road. The painter does not prescribe them in detail. One can only assume from the outlines of the figures that this is a man and a woman. They decided to go for a walk to enjoy the pleasant frost and see the beauty of this corner of nature.
A majestic sky reigns over all this silence. It almost merges with the furry crowns of trees. Aivazovsky portrays it in blue, blue and pinkish tones.
The whole picture is illuminated by light. We feel that Aivazovsky not only admires nature, but also wants to convey these feelings to us.
