Alexander Ivanov was an amazingly diverse artist. It so happened that it is known to a wide circle of people, first of all, for its biblical masterpieces. But Ivanov’s work was not limited to this. He was able to very subtle and sincerely paint pictures of nature.
One of these paintings is called "Vetka". At first glance, there is nothing special about it. Everything is very simple, artless. Probably, you need to be a real artist in order to discern something worthy of being captured in this custom.
A tree branch is brought to the fore. She, as it were, accidentally “looks” into the picture, leaving her trunk behind the frame. By the thickness of the branch it can be assumed that this is a very young, elegant tree. The diagonal of the branch is directed from top to bottom. As a result, a branch with leaves is central to the canvas. Brightly, clearly, in detail drawn on a branch leaflets. For greater realism, the artist uses different shades of green. The main cold green tone is diluted with yellow and dark green shades.
The background of the picture is only indicated, but not clearly drawn. This is a kind of decoration, the general background. He does not distract the viewer's attention from contemplating a tree branch, the main object of the composition. Shades of blue and lilac colors were used for the background. This gives the picture freshness and mystery. It seems that everything is lost in the fog, in the mysterious morning haze.
The background of the picture is divided into two parts by the horizon line. But this division is not strictly horizontal. The picture shows perspective, spaciousness and aspiration into the distance. In the pale yellow reflections of the sky, the presence of the sun is guessed. Very soon it will rise and everything around will turn into bright, juicy, summer colors. In the meantime, nothing violates the clear coolness of the early morning.
