Description of the artwork «Copy-interpretation of the painting "Lake of Mountain Spirits" by Grigory Choros-Gurkin»

"Lake of Mountain Spirits" is a generalized landscape of Altai with subtle symbolism, a reflection of the artist Choros-Gurkin on the eternal. Gurkin himself wrote several versions of the painting. The one I took for a copy is in the museum-estate of the artist in the village of Anos.
Copying Gurkin's paintings, I learn a great deal, as if he were prompting me himself. This great artist and I are united by our love for Altai, the most beautiful land in the world.
I didn't use the tracing paper copying technique and didn't take the original tones. I did the undercoat with ochre and then took a more saturated range to dramatize the landscape, especially the sky.
