Gleb Garanin’s passion and adoration for gun dogs is second to none. He portrays this in most of his artworks. To his credits are brilliant and beautiful paintings in this category such as his “Seeker and Pointer” painting as well as his “Pointer” artwork.
“Retriever” appears as another well thought painting from Garanin. The artwork shows a retriever in his line of duty, leaving a pond with a duck in its mouth. Retrievers are well trained dogs with soft mouth. They have a great willingness to learn, please their masters and they are generally obedient.
Garanin accomplished the appealing aesthetic effect this painting has through the color details and the fine point brushes he used for the different part in the background which makes it soothingly cool.
A glance at the painting makes the viewer focused and calm. It further draws the attention of the viewer to find out the minutest details Garanin has embedded in this absorbing artwork. This piece, just like other Garanin’s artworks is undeniably impeccable.
