Description of the painting by Ivan Shishkin In the grove

Without departing from the theme of the landscape, the artist based his work on the working days of ordinary workers. This can be seen in the women walking in the park, one of them has a tool on his shoulder. The girl goes with them, with small steps, a little skipping, ahead of the women in progress.

It is still green, sunlight penetrates through the density of trees, which plays its rays on stones and leaves, the wind slightly moves the height of the trees.

Looking closely, it seems that people walking talk about something, and a little girl with a covered head does not pay attention to it. But on the canvas, women are standing in front of a large puddle, apparently wondering how to get to the other side without getting dirty.

What huge boulders are depicted in the picture that it even seems as if they are the size of an adult. They have a lot of moss, which suggests that this grove for many years, as well as the massive trunks of trees, convince us of this.

The viewer has a beautiful view of the places that people are still trying to preserve and increase. Everything is in some kind of harmony, even a sharp transition from shadow to light does not stand out much on the canvas, only thanks to this transition, you can feel the presence of summer or early autumn.

The glade, surrounded by light and stones scattered in the chaos of nature, attracts attention and warms with warmth that can be felt while looking at the details illuminated by the sun. Everything is harmoniously combined, but not quite on the canvas are visible people, the author paid them a little attention.

Everything is surrounded by color and colors, the author tried to bring people into life, especially in those difficult times for ordinary people, a little joy and life, to share with them hope and the desire to go forward, leaving defeats behind, proudly bear their destiny without fear of error. Need to try and act!
