Valeriy Franchuk is a famous Ukrainian Artist with 153 personal shows as in Ukraine so in Europe. Genre: landscape, still life, portrait. The Wind Catchers is impressionist oil painting with rich colours. Masterfully depicted sea is raging – yachts rush at full speed along the waves, although the waves are relatively small. It seems we can feel the wind flying due to the short and forceful brushstrokes by the artist. The painting is in excellent condition.
