Sketch painted at sunset, early spring of 2022. The sunny day slopes towards sunset and stains everything it can reach with copper potassium. The spring chime is already echoing in every warm spot. It is very important for the artist to capture these incredible colors in the painting, and he plunges into work with his head. The main thing is to have time to echo to himself silently in his head. It becomes an obsession for a while. Warm stroke, cold stroke. Warm and cold always go hand in hand on the artist's canvas, but it can be felt especially in early spring. When the shadows have not yet moved away from the winter cold, and the bright blue sky reflexes in their cold ultramarine depth, and already warm, but gentle sun colors the last rays of not yet melted snow and loose thawing. The most important thing at such moments is to warm yourself from inside creating and inspiring. And when you finish the work, you exhale with relief. Everything has been done.
