The essence of Kandalaksha captured on canvas

al_ovchinnikovaAn artist who managed to put the city’s charming chaos on canvas has finally come around. It is Alexandra Ovchinnikova, a St. Petersburg painter who combines realism, impressionism, and folk art motives in her work.

It is a great pleasure for me to present a sample of her art related to Kandalaksha.

Here I've met the white-haired Soviet professor, the son of writer Bianki. He's been working at the Ryazhkov island of the Kandalaksha Nature Reserve for 50 years.
