About the author
Valentinas Varnas became one of the most popular landscape painters as soon as he joined our platform. It seems that this author does not look for motifs for long, and one would not say that the images he captures are unseen or unexpected, but the artist sees beauty and a kind of romance in each one. These paintings are somewhat like a diary, describing the events of each day in images, not picking out the most spectacular moments, but looking for the poetry in the everyday sights. And they are depicted in an etymological manner, preserving the impression of spontaneity, the brushstrokes are applied precisely but with a sense of urgency, in a rush to capture the light and its play.
One of the most frequent motifs is water, whether it is a raging lagoon or a stream flowing calmly through a forest. The artist captivatingly captures its shimmering and reflections, and the mood of the work can be sensed from its glassy surface or its restless rippling.
