Description of the artwork «Absorption»

The painting "Absorption" is my favorite painting. The magnificent lakes, the sharp peaks of the peaks, the wide expanses fully reflect the mountain landscape.
In this painting, I intentionally used soft tones along with the strong contrasts that are inherent in the setting sun to show how quickly the weather, the mood, changes at altitude. The idea is the speed of the day's absorption of the night. The gentle setting sun, illuminating the slopes of the cliffs, is replaced by the pre-sunset twilight, and the sky responds with scarlet-red hues.
