Art: Beautiful impressionistic paintings by Konstantin Razumov (05)

Would like to share with you today these beautiful impressionistic paintings from young and talented artist Konstantin Razumov. He has an elegant and charming painting style and is using rich colours in his paintings. Earlier I wrote more blogs about this inspiring artist, SEE HERE
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.
