Landscapes of his motherland attain a special place in the oeuvre of V aleriy Kopnyak. The beauty of nature inspired him to paint bird's eye views of its flooded shores and panoramic landscapes of the surrounding areas. At the same time, Kopnyak's acute love of nature, influenced by the Orthodox faith, found a powerful expression in these unpretentious landscapes with elements of Russian rural life, rendered in a meticulous and touching manner.

The "golden autumn" theme – one of the most lyrical in Russian classical painting – occupies a particular place in the oeuvre of Kopnyak. The artist deliberately rejects the monumental and epic approach of the Soviet landscape school and seeks to preserve and convey, even in the most extensive of his canvases, the impression of an intimate, lyrical landscape by focusing on some tiny, "unremarkable" part of nature.
