Valentin Korotkov is a Russian painter based in Moscow, who studied at the Art College of the Kharkov Academy of Design and Art.
He paints with a brusque, textural style, in which the surface texture and paint application is visible even in small reproductions.
His landscapes have a nice quality of casual immediacy, and range in color palette from intense to subdued. His still life compositions also show a range of palette choices, though they are often brought to a more refined finish. Korotkov also does figurative works that take on more of a narrative, illustrative quality.
There is an extensive selection of his work on his website, (note the links to subsequent pages at the bottom), and on the ArtNow.ru group gallery site.
