Aquarelle for Ravnogor : Акварел за Равногор

By: Mrs. Marlena Stoyanova Yurukova

Water color landscapes depicting the beauty of the village of Ravnogor and Rhodope Mountains, Bulgaria, where it is located. The landscapes were painted "alla prima" from nature by the author Marlena Yurukova during her stays in Ravnogor and her wanderings in its surroundings in the time from 1985 to 2015. Short three-line verses that fin in with the aquarelles add to conveying the impression of the natural beauty of this place.
