This timeless painting by Shapovalenko captures the innocence and beauty of childhood. The artist applies color in multiple layers and works quickly, allowing him to see the image as a whole. Inherited from his Impressionistic predecessors, Shapovalenko’s brush strokes are quick and playful, as he catches light before it is lost.
