Russian artists painting landscapes depict native surroundings stretching under the blue, cloudy sky, in all seasons. Landscape art has existed for centuries.


Russian landscape paintings always attract nature lovers. For example seascape paintings, which attract viewers with their vast expanses of water, especially beautiful and dramatic scenery with bulky, transparent sea waves and swirling foam at the shore in a raging storm sea, where gusty winds tear sails from ships. The lyricism in seascapes of marine sailing ships in bad weather is always attractive to see, for example a very beautiful seascape painting, which shows a sunset over the sea with light translucent waves after a light wind.

Russian landscape painting is usually characterized by a clarity of composition, scale and simplicity. The main idea of landscape painting is to reflect the space of nature, its grandeur and epic calm and visual sense of beauty. Many masters of landscape painting chose themes when nature is in transition; for a short time the light changes, the sun is hidden behind thick clouds majestically soaring high in the sky, the sun's rays pass through the clouds creating changing shadows. On the horizon a yellowed August wheat field surrounded by bright green grass, a light haze clouding the horizon. Distant and proximate perspective is merged into a single surrounding space.

Artists often made sketches on location of various exotic places in all seasons.


To create a complete picture, the artist had to paint many landscape sketches in pencil, and penetrate every blade of grass illuminated by the sun, bush, foliage and many different elements. For example Aivazovsky had a great observational memory, many of his seascapes he did not paint from life, especially the paintings featuring sea storms, where the waves roll on shore during the evening sunset - it is impossible to paint this from life.
