Volodymyr Reshetov, a good hand at drawing lyric landscapes, spent big part of his life making posters. But he was always fascinated with countryside, its spaciousness that he depicts so flawlessly in his immanent realistic-romantic manner. For this reason he devoted himself to drawing landscapes, first in watercolors and then eventually set on painting in oils. In his paintings full of vitality, air and lightness the master reproduces moods, time, seasons... Reshetov manages to get an insight into the innermost of nature, to show it as is, to catch the slightest color shades and moods. Flickering spring tree flowers, lush summer grass, hot sunny summer day or sea waves — all these are protagonists so lyrically sung of by the master. His works are always tranquil and serene. To draw a landscape, the painter chooses cozy places and paint in finest strokes. Using multilayer painting technique, he creates amazingly live images. Mood of his works associates with masterpieces of French impressionists. Delicately chosen by the master colors are blended so naturally on canvas. His chord of tones is quiet, hos works are somewhat light and laconic. He felicitously highlights the key points and at the same time keeps the picture romantically tranquil.
