The characteristic silence of Žmuidzinavičius’ landscapes is also present in many of his paintings. His landscape painting Lake Vištytis (1937) (R-927) reveals the creative principles of his landscapes. Trees (fir and pine trees) are in the foreground, and water which merges with the sky in the horizon is in the background. Colours of the painting are rich, tones are shaded and calm, and the brush strokes are light and sketchy.
