Shishkin is famous for the fact that he can very realistically depict all small and at first glance insignificant sections of his native land. According to the smallest strokes of the master, it immediately becomes clear that the artist is not able to imagine himself without his native Russia. "Stream in the forest" as if alive on the canvas, it seems you can even hear how the birds are singing, and the grove rustles.

Before the viewer appears a beautiful pine forest, along which a stream runs. Around him are pine trees. It can be seen that some pine trees are already very old and look like some giants, their branches are spread out to the sides, but they do not have a single needle.

Despite this, they are still great and strong. Further, the viewer draws attention to the nearby, very young pines, which seem to be asking the formidable giants to make room and give a place closer to the lively and rapid stream.

Naturally, the stream is the main one in this picture and occupies a central place in the exposition. Each turn and play with light is traced with maximum accuracy. It is also worth paying attention to how each blade of grass is drawn, which tends to lean towards water and stretching upwards.

But is it worth saying that the life of a stream in the forest cannot boast of its lightness, because the stones blocked the way to this fun and dynamic stream. That is why, he has to look for another way to get to the river or lake.

The canvas surprisingly outperforms the game of shadow and light. Despite the fact that the stream, together with the forest, are in the shade in the foreground of the canvas. At the rear, they are completely illuminated by bright sunlight. It is also worth paying attention to the bright meadow, and between the trees, you can distinguish the blue sky.

This time, Shishkin created a truly fabulous landscape, which can approach a large number of Russian fairy tales. That and look, the hut on chicken legs will appear.
