“In this painting, I wanted to paint the natural scene as holistically as possible using wider brushes and larger passages of colour.” —Valeria Privalikhina
Capturing the essence of a nonchalant summer day with gloriously free brushwork and elegant colour contrasts, Valeria creates a harmonious yet visually stimulating composition. The surroundings of the park are rendered in dark olive, flamboyant lime, and muted viridian, showing the artist’s primary interest in the sensation of colour.
