Nicolai Fechin’s Landscapes

Nicolai Fechin was primarily a portrait painter, but he also painted some stunning landscapes. I curated a gallery of them below for your inspiration.

As you look through these paintings, notice the wide range of techniques—the thick, impasto strokes, the bursts of color, the texture, the intricate details, the broken and soft edges, the broken strokes, often leaving parts of the bare canvas exposed. All woven together with harmony. Also notice how they appear abstract up close but realistic from afar. This comes down to the meticulous execution of the fundamentals. It’s not easy to paint like this!
