I was inspired by the beautiful impressionistic paintings from young and talented Russian artist Konstantin Razumov. Earlier I posted several other blogs about the work of Konstantin Razumov, see also the links: Part 01, Part 03, Part 04, Part 05 and Part 06.
About the artist:
Konstantin Razumov (Born 1974) is a young and talented artist from Russia. He studied at the studio of Ilya Glazunov at the Academy of Fine Arts of Moscow, where he specialised in history painting and achieved a great success. He has painted all kinds of subjects, from glamorous ladies to landscapes. His bright colours, the smoothness of the skin in his nudes, the expressive features of his characters, distinguish his paintings. Razumov has a vibrant shimmering brushstroke plus a mastery of light and excellent draftsmanship. His works are much in demand. Influenced by many styles, he has mastered the technique of combining both Realism and Impressionism. In most of his figural paintings, the features of hands and face are painted realistically, while fabrics and the surroundings are painted with an impressionist brushstroke. Razumov is at his graceful best when his subjects are young ladies.
