about this painting:


Attracted by the movie theatre

The development of oil painting art supplies played a big role in the development of Impressionism. Impressionism brought much to art, for instance, impressionists modernized colors. They abandoned the dark, earth paints and started using pure spectral colors on the canvas without their preliminary mixing on a palette. Play of shadows appears on the canvas instead of dark-colored hues. If you look at the canvas “Movie Theatre”, you will see many pure colors in spite of the fact that night is depicted on it. The only source of light – the outdoor lighting that decorate the exterior of the movies and look marvelous.

Have a look at the movie posters that are visible round the clock and forget about everything as you watch the movie. Cinema always attracted many viewers. The highest-grossing films include:

·                    Harry Potter

·                    Middle-Earth series of Peter Jackson

·                    Transformers

·                    Pirates of Caribbean and others.

Role of art supplies in the development of impressionism and oil painting art

The invention of metal tubes for paints also influenced art. The paints in metal tubes replaced the old paints that were made manually from the oil and powder pigments. The painters could use these paints in the open air and there was no necessity to work in the studio only as before. The painters worked fast because the sun moved quickly and this changed the colors of the landscape. Sometimes they squeezed paints from the tube directly onto the canvas to give the effect of smear to clean sparkling colors. 

Putting brushstrokes next to each other, the painters often made the surface rough and left it this way. It is known that the complex tone can be always decomposed into a series of simple tones so the impressionists created the system when the complex tones are decomposed and separate pure colors are mixed in the eye of the viewer creating the colored shadows when perceived by people.

What a genius! It is so sad there are tons of duplicates sold on ebay and similar stores. May be it is not easy to prosecute the manufacturers in China. But isn't it possible to file suit against resellers like ebay and other re-sellers in USA, selling duplicate paintings? Since each hand painting is different from another, may be it cannot be considered as duplication. Any thoughts

Felicitaciones Leonid!!!! Hace muchos años había tenido la inquietud de comenzar a pintar y no lo había hecho hasta que me inspiré en uno de sus cuadros. Su temática me fascina y es muy vívida. Mi padre es pintor y yo tengo esas habilidades, pero no explotadas. Feliz año 2015.

I think Afremov 'has the power'! Your paintings are really magic and of a good and positive magic. I didn't bought your paintings for an investment, or for your importance as artist, or for the meaning, or because they are very well made, (maybe these are all good causes also), i just bought it... because I REALLY LIKE IT! THEY ARE VERY EXCITING! Watching your paintings let my heart feel better. Thank you for your work.
