Utegonov’s landscapes are amazingly beautiful with their brown and golden colour range combined with acute impression of nature and simplicity and logic clearness of its conveyance. His emotional perception of nature determines its depiction in his paintings. The artist skillfully conveys different states of nature using the shades of colours and light.
