Bay of Kotor, the bay, yacht
The painting is performed in confident Realistic style. Using the zigzag composition the artist unfolds the space and reproduces multilayered impression given by this spot of nature, where water, earth and sky elements unite with the hand-made rhythm of yachts and masts. Interlacing relative white and green wedges, each repeated twice, such as green-covered hill and its vibrating reflection in the water, the bulk of yachts and the ephemeral silhouette of the mountain in the background, the painter opposes the real and tangible with the changeable and unsteady. The upper and lower parts of the canvas - water and sky - are connected with verticals of masts, real as well as reflected. The author’s craftsmanship is evident not only in masterly portrayal of space filled with air, but also in the endless variety of stroke techniques, that, though the color range is rather restraint, grant the impression of richness to the pictorial texture.
