My painting “Still Life with maple leaves” was included in the final of the online exhibition “In search of beauty”. The exhibition is organized by the famous New York art gallery “People & Paintings”.
In my youth, I was fascinated by the beauty and craftsmanship of Flemish and Dutch still lives. The painting “Still Life with maple leaves” is an attempt to reread the old masters’ traditions of creating harmonious compositions. It is a search for picturesque combinations and beauty in everyday objects.
This still life was painted from life in my summer studio. I used the technique of the old masters. More information about this work can be found on the page of the painting “Still Life with maple leaves”.
Here you can watch a video about the stages and process of creating the painting ” Still Life with maple leaves”:
