The manner of writing Bobrovsky impresses with its breadth. His colors are expressive. The artist gives maximum attention to lighting. In his paintings there is a deliberate etude. The composition is fragmentary. The painter sought to convey a lively perception of nature.
In the painting “Lake” we see the usual, it would seem, landscape. But there is an impression of some decorativeness. The sky is reflected in the water. This gives the work a certain symmetry.
Bobrovsky used shades of blue and green.
When you look at the picture, you can feel the brightness of the colors. They are somewhat unnatural. The boat with the fisherman, which we see on the right, is written quite schematically. A person is depicted from the back, since his personality matters only as part of the landscape. It is as if merged with nature and becomes an important part of it.
An inexperienced viewer may think that this is not an independent picture, but an etude to a large canvas. There is an impression of fragmentation. The landscape is torn from the picture. It seems to us that the composition is not completed. It’s like a fragment. For the artist, something else was important. He tried to convey his feelings from what he saw. Cheerful perception just overwhelms the picture. It is all flooded with light. Bright colors really impress.
The painter sought to ensure that the audience could feel that nature is alive. That is why his picture is filled with sun. It seems that a little more, and you can feel a slight breeze blowing.
In this case, not entirely natural colors do not interfere with perception. Bobrovsky saw the landscape just like that. He tried to convey his perception of this corner of nature. At first glance, there is nothing remarkable here. But beauty is just hidden in the usual. Only a real master can see her.
