Competition 'My Native Land'

Time of carrying out of the competition: January 1, 2014 - April 1, 2014.

Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd,
As home his footsteps he hath turn'd
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour'd, and unsung.

Sir Walter Scott

Wedernikow Boris, painting "Spring in Tomsk"

The artwork convinces with the level of professionalism of the scenic and compositional techniques. This gives the chance to the artist to create the deep, realistic, truthful image of the ancient Russian city Tomsk founded in 1604. The atmosphere of warm winter day and approaching spring is conveyed nicely. The image is so convincing that it seems that it is the photograph, but it is not so. Each house, church on the hill, each bush are placed competently, according to the laws of the composite solution of the picture plane. The image of the Russian hinterland, the soul of the Russian worldview depicted subtly, unobtrusively, that certainly resonates with the audience.

The picture attracts with the ingenuous purity expressed in the landscape, in harmonious from the point of view of painting color and composite solutions. The image of the young woman depicted with the sence of finesse. The artwork is penetrated by simplicity and professional skill.
