Diptych. Oil on canvas, palette knife, felt-tip pens. 50 × 40 cm and 50 × 45 cm. 14 June 2021
Adjacent to the series "Giving Back to the Street". The picture has been started and finished under the sound of rain. Two black ones at the bottom - glossy and matte, dry and wet. All four textures are different to the touch. Gray is a mixture of two brightest colors: Petersburg pink and Turkish blue. Both of them shine through the batch. I remembered this when I was young: then it was considered unsportsmanlike to receive neutral strokes from lands and ocher. But to catch a gray mouse from red and green is Burshev's way.
