This is not to say that this is such a beautiful picture. There are no pleasant, bright colors ... No flowers, birds, sun. And yet I quite like her.
So, the picture shows a sandpit, relatively steep, but not very high, near the Dnieper River. Calm gray sky, clouds translucent veil. There is no sun, but light. The time of the year is, I think, late autumn or early spring. Evening, morning or afternoon (no sun). In the background are cargo cranes.
The lines in the picture are clear: a steep cliff of the quarry, small working barracks, clouds ... Everything is calm, there is no movement. People are not visible. There are no animals, no birds Everything seems partly abandoned, and one of the feelings evoked by the painting is melancholy. But not only this - it is very decorative in its own way.
The picture seemed to stand still.
