about this painting:


Beauty of the night city

What can attract you in the dark city at night? This is certainly a well-lit central street of the city. You can see all beauty of the city then. Everything is right and pure at the painting Night Attraction. If you want to paint the similar painting, you will not be able to stay in your studio. It can be especially hard to paint outdoors, especially when it is dark. If it is the first time when the artist works over the outdoor oil painting, plain air art instruction is required. You should be able to:

·                    Blend the oil colors in a right way.

·                    Be aware of the horizon line and be able to apply this concept.

·                    Have understanding of right placement of the objects in respect to the horizon line.

If you look at the painting “Night Attraction”, you will see what catches the eye immediately, so you can use this lesson to understand the psychology of perception.

Essence of Impressionism

Afremov creates his outdoor artworks in the Impressionism style. The essential feature of Impressionism is that it should not have canonized forms. Therefore there is no pure Impressionism. It does not exist. Usually, the term "Impressionism" means a direction in painting, although its ideas were reflected in other forms of art, such as music.

Impressionism is, primarily, an art of unprecedented sophistication. This is an art of observation of reality and transfer or creation of impression. This is art, in which the story is not important. And “Night Attraction” does not include the story, as well. Oil painting art says of Afremov’s admiration in this case and the way he looks at this scene. This is a new, subjective artistic reality. Impressionists put forward its own principles of perception and reflection of the world. They erase the line between the main subject worthy of high art, and objects of secondary importance.

Principles of Impressionism

An important principle of Impressionism is a departure from typical. In art became momentary and a casual glance appeared in it. It seems that canvases of Impressionists are painted not by painters, but by people passing by, who are walking on the boulevards and enjoy life. At that time, it was a revolution in vision. Nowadays it is a common trend.

I recently purchased and received one of Leonid’s original oil paintings (Spring Emotions). The painting exactly matched the photograph that Leonid had displayed on his online store, down to every last brush stroke. It is absolutely breathtaking and I can’t thank Leonid enough for selling me this masterpiece! The customer service from his sons David and Boris was excellent; they spent considerable time with me on their online chat facility before I bought the painting and made extra effort to make me feel at ease when the delivery of the painting was delayed by an extra week due to drying issues (the original had only just been painted the week before). Living in the UK and with Leonid and his family based in the US / Mexico, it can be a slightly nerve wracking experience taking a leap of faith and buying online, without actually seeing the painting in front of you. Based on my experience, I can whole-heartedly recommend buying from I hope my testimonial encourages a few more people to buy from this wonderful artist! My special thanks to Leonid and his sons. Nick (Reading, United Kingdom).

I ordered " Sunday Night". I received the painting in due course and it is beautiful and colourful. However when I compare what I received to the original painting , I am a little disappointed as many fine details which were present in the original are blurry / hazy in the recreation. For ex, windows, panes, towers, some buildings are very hazy as compared to original where they are clearly delineated. While I love looking at the recreation it is accompNied by a twinge of what could be.

We love Leonid's art! We have five on our walls now, and are always tempted for more... they look even better in person!
