This is a master in the writing of nature and pine forest, all the subtleties of nature to the smallest details are depicted on his canvases. He painted a large number of famous and amazing paintings that conquer the hearts of many admirers of art, painting and Shishkin’s talent.
The picture “Pines illuminated by the sun” is a very bright and colorful work, it captivates with its virginity this wonderful land. Sincerity, amazing natural combinations of colors and shades allow you to feel this state. It seems that we are there, in this wonderful area, from which you do not want to leave. Such a plot can be developed only when completely imbued with nature and dissolved in it.
The main character is the sun, which is reflected in all the characters in the plot; it creates the mood and image of everything that is displayed there. The bright sun caresses the trunks of trees.
Pines are shown to be strong, strong and strong, the tops of which are cut by the artist purposely to show their full strength. Each pine tree shows itself as a person, with its own character and characteristics. It seems to be trees, and you look and understand – power. All details of the picture are thought out to the smallest detail, and fully correspond to reality, whether it is a pine trunk or a blade of grass under the bright rays of the sun. The forest lives its amazing life, which Ivan Shishkin shows us.
Stroking on the picture, you feel not only the transferred mood, but you also feel the elusive notes of pine forest. Isn’t that brilliant and extraordinary?
The painting is considered the most poetic work of the master, for her mood, soul and full penetration into the image. The work is written in oil on canvas and is in the Tretyakov Gallery.
