Description:Anatoly Startsev, Vladivostok local artist, creates the unique arts of Contemporary watercolor landscapes on birch bark. Also a scientist of social anthropology he is engaged in research of aboriginals of the Russian Far East. He has adopted their technique of using birch bark for writing and drawing. Startsev uses a full range of colors for his inimitable Russian landscapes on birch bark. Every picture is unique, as the material (birch back) provides texture incorporated in the design, which prohibits recreation of the same picture. There is another advantage of these watercolor pictures: birch bark has a longer life than paper. These pictures will provide pleasure of enjoyment to several generations. The paintings introduce four seasons of the year in Russia: snowy winter, pastel spring, sunny summer and multi-colored falls. Pictures of several sizes are available: small - 5 x 9 inches, medium - 7 x 10 inches and large - 8 x 11 inches. Size
varies depending upon the size of birch tree the bark was taken from. Every picture is set into ash or elm wooden frame and covered with glass.
