A peaceful and warm feeling

Overview: A calm environment
Through touch, we can sense the surface quality of an object. This is known as the object's texture.
I would imagine that the surface of "Alley by the Lake" would be rough to the touch, due to Afremov's impasto technique.
Impasto is an art term used to describe thickly textured paint that is almost three-dimensional in appearance.

The couple at the center
Everything blind together and nothing stands on its own.
In essence, everything compliments itself as there is balance, adequate emphasis on the scenario which is likewise in tune with the scale and proportion.
The couple walking toward the vanishing point.
Has affected by some nineteenth century impressionist ( as Marc Chagall, Malevich & Kandinsky )
