Description

On the painting we see a characteristic old city landscape in of Europe, the Middle Ages or Medieval Period around 16th – 17th century. Jurita’s inspiration comes from evening City view by people-watching. 
Middle century Historical’s street with merchant’s house’s in a nice and calm evening. Evening just beginning, but street lights begining go light throughout the street. A wide cobblestone street with low banks crosses the picture vertically, helping the viewer’s eye to see the perspective. With clear horizontal strokes, Jurita shows the movement of the street.
Before the eyes opens the space of flight of the soul. With dark evening clouds the sky on the horizon converges with the sunshine line.
In the city view there is no sadness, on the contrary, the mood is peaceful. City able to sleep, on the street is no people, no the cause of the noise.

The painting is painted with high quality “Winsor & Newton” artist’s oil colour paints with add linseed oil on canvas gallery stretching. Oil painting was waiting fully dry within a couple of months before was protected with dammar varnishing. Dammar Varnish the oldest liquid varnish, this gives a very high gloss and gives protection to recently completed oil paintings.
In a good frame it look all gorgeous. Now this is a very popular kind of painting.
A distinctive feature of this painting are short small brushstrokes. The picture is completely unique. Used painting technique, which excluded backup and exact repetition. The picture will always be only a single instance.
