In the film “A gust of wind” with its gloomy sky, sweeping dark clouds, knocked down in one direction by branches of trees and an ominous orange-yellow sunset, everything is permeated with a sense of anxiety. A female figure, breaking through to the wind, represents the theme of the confrontation between the natural element of nature and the romanticism, which goes back to the traditions of Romanticism.
The subtlest transitions of shades of brownish, dark gray and dark green colors, their smooth flowing form a single emotional color chord, transmitting a thunderstorm. Variability of lighting strengthens the mood of anxiety in the artist’s landscape motif.
