This beautiful picture is multifaceted. In its center, we see a hang glider, which is confidently controlled by a pilot. It seems that the person spread his wings like a bird. People, depicted on the right side of the canvas, look with interest at the glider soaring in the sky. All this was very reliably able to convey the artist.
In the background, the artist depicted the endless Crimean open spaces.
The sky is depicted in blue and sometimes white paint. Gleams of the sun convey yellow. High calm, it was these shades that helped to see it. Against this background, the main characters of the canvas look great.
  The painting “Hang Glider” creates a benevolent mood in the viewer. There are no annoying spots, all shades and colors are very harmoniously combined with each other. helps to calm, awaken dreams and immersion in the world of dreams.

He needs a frame to hold it in place, but I will let the next owner decide which type of frame and which color will look better. I like these old paintings leaning against the walls because they really don't even need a frame to add to their interior style.
