My sketchy copy of this Portrait by Serow, done 1887. She was the wife of an Train-Engineer.

I looove the colors and the energy in the background and the way it blocks in the figure - really nice!

Thank you very much for your nice comments.
Ivyleaf: I came across a book about russian painters of the 19th century by coinsidence. Since then I try to collect images and books about those guys. Serow,Repin,Wrubel,Kramskoy and so on were wonderful artists and I guess...overlooked.
Have a nice day

Your pictures are so refreshing - Colours colours colours, I love them! :D
There is an artist, who is dead now, called George Lambert, who I always thought was just Australian, but one time while looking at a great website on the internet it listed him as Russian/Australian Do you happen to know of him? He is one of my Hero's :D
Of course it could be that he immigrated to Australia with his family at a very young age, and so is not known in Russia...
I know you just listed some of your favourite artist's, but out of curiosity, who do you think is your favourite of all and/or who influences you the most? I ask only because your art is so different to most, and I find it very interesting. :)
I do know that you are a fan of Lautrec. :D
took a long time to download here but it was worth the wait mc:), as usual.

Sherville: Thanks for your comment. What influenced me most...mh
The drawings of Adolphe von Menzel (died in Berlin 1905)
The looseness of Toulouse-Lautrec.
The deepness of Holbein the Younger
That's about it.
Lulu: Thank you very much.
Have a nice day
