At the beginning of his vivid journey through the Russian outback, Eugene Gradova artist creates one of her first painting, The Village Landscape. The picture of a small size of 27.5 × 39 cm. Is written on cardboard by oil. The plot of the picture tells of village everyday life in the Russian village. The artist skillfully uses the color rhythm of warm and cold colors in the composition, thereby attracting the spectator eye to the most important elements of the picture. In the foreground we see bright wild flowers not touched by the hand of inhabitant and are, as it were, an introduction to the composition. In the background of the picture, the viewer opens a well-groomed field with two haystacks, which is specially highlighted by the artist with warm shades of yellow. Further, practically on the horizon line are placed several cold and gray village houses. The author specially makes a strong accent on the line of contrast of warm and cold color, in order to attract the viewer's attention to what is beyond the horizon and remains invisible to the city dweller - this is a hard and poorly paid work of village residents in the Russian outback. In general, this picture of the artist shows not only the beauty of Russian nature, but also makes a timid attempt to draw attention to social issues in the village outback. The original of this painting is in the author's collection, does not have a copy and a history's sale. Reproduction copies of this painting are also available for sale in a limited edition and with the artist's signature.
