Russian Soldier - Oil on Canvas
The artist expertly captures the heat and intensity of this moment, immortalising the suspense on canvas. Splashes of red are contrasted with deep, earthy hues, to reflect the passion and bravery of these individuals. A highly emotive and ardent image. The ornate frame of this piece almost acts as an extension of the image itself, with the worn away areas of red creating a wonderfully dramatic compliment to the palette of the painting.
