Donetsk, Nov22 – DAN. DPR artists exhibited their paintings after a Crimean tour at Art Donbass Exhibition Centre in the Republic’s capital.

The majority of works, such as ‘Vorontsov Palace’, ‘Sunny’ and ‘Windy Day’ are a combination of realism and impressionism. Ukraine’s Honoured Artist Larisa Dzharty and aspiring young artists Svetlana Doroshenko and Grigory Yefimenko were among the contributors.

“Crimea Plain Air Painting” is our story about the trip to the sunny peninsula. We’ve walked with our easels the Crimean roads from Sudak to Noviy Svet, from Solnechnaya Dolina to Morskoye village. Local residents warmly welcomed us as they learnt that we were from DPR,” Dzharty said.

About 50 paintings are displayed at the exhibition at Art Donbass center until mid-January 2017.

En plein air is a phrase borrowed from the French equivalent meaning "open (in full) air", used to describe the act of painting outdoors, where a painter reproduces the actual visual conditions seen at the time of the painting with all the colors varieties created by sunlight and weather conditions.
