His canvases are bright and sunny; they draw attention by their romantic mystique. Kondratiev is a great master in painting with palette-knife and brush. In many works we trace his love to the water element, it fascinates and surprises him. He manages to transfuse the effects of light and shadow on the sea surface, the infinite change of water shades. To achieve the tonal nuances, he skillfully uses the glaze, and painting becomes easy and graceful, there is almost watercolor transparency in the transfer of color gradations. The colors give the artist first of all possibility torender the space, volume of items, the distribution of color on their surface. Kondratiev’s canvases seem to be not of color but of light.
Having arrived in St. Petersburg, the artist fall in love with its unique, exciting and attractive beauty. Perhaps, therefore, most of his works are devoted to his beloved city. The city has formed him as a person and an artist.

His works which were created during the trips to Finland, France and Italy are of particular interest. The main featurein them - it's acolor, he tries just through the color to make a viewer feel the same what he did in these memorable places.

The art works of Kondratiev reflected his inner state, his cheerful admiration of the world, a thirst to see the beauty and give it to people.
