Skurugata

Skurugata in eastern Småland is a very odd feature in the Swedish landscape: a cleft 800 meters long, 7-24 meters wide and up to 35 meters deep. The climate in it is much colder than the surrounding areas and the snow usually doesn’t melt until the summer. This is an illustration for a guide to nature reserves produced by the Jönköping county administrative board.

Beautiful composition. Elegant and gentle.
Kind regards

Thanks a lot, Galina! In this painting I tried a reversed "colour perspective": cool colours in the forground and warm ones in the background.
