Information about author
Roman Selskyi is an exquisite colourist, who developed the school of Ukrainian colourism started by Oleksa Novakivskyi. Selskyi was distinctive for his national sense of colour, his attention to bright, intense and finely harmonized colours, related to the range of Ukrainian embroideries, carpets, scribbles. Flat colour patches are the main way of creating a composition. Different variations of colour harmony and contrasts reflect the change of moods in a painting. In the work "In Chornohora" in the foreground there are wildflowers, giving the impression that the landscape is painted through them. To the left, dry spruce is depicted vertically, and several green spruces are seen behind. A glimpse of a valley appears before the viewer, with grasses in hot shades of red-ochre to yellow-green; in the background there are several ridges of mountains, alternating and surfacing one after the other, change in colour; those closer are deep green, changing to greenish-purple and violet-blue. Above is a bluish-grey sky with pinkish grey clouds.
