about this painting:


The cosiness of Belorussian cities

This marvellous oil artwork by Leonid Afremov is a depiction of Vitebsk, one of the most beautiful cities in Belorussia. This city has a rich history and great architecture. It is enough to say, in order to understand how important this city is to Leonid Afremov, that Vitebsk is his hometown. The quiet streets of the magnificent city are connected with his childhood and youth, and they are the environment that produced the great master. Therefore, it is very interesting for us, who like Leonid Afremov’s paintings, to look at the charming city of Vitebsk.

The home streets

Looking at this marvellous piece of modern oil art, we see a side street in old Vitebsk. It is rainy evening. No cars are seen on the road, there is just a distant woman making her way through the gloom, with her umbrella saving her from the cold drops of rain. The yellow walls of ancient buildings fetters the road. Some of their windows are quite dark, while other windows are lit up with mysterious reddish light. You are walking along the night street and are hearing the rain drops hitting the pavement, the walls, the windows, some distant steps, some words that are being born behind the walls, inside the warm rooms where people are living their lives without knowing that you have happened to find yourself here by their windows and hear them. However, they all are unseen, and the whole city lies before you, empty, dark and naked. And every building you meet while walking along the night streets dimly alight with rare lampposts contains plenty of mysteries, of other leaves you have never touched and will never touch. And thus will you walk farther and pass unnoticed, a silent shadow hiding itself under cloud of night.

Some places worth visiting in Vitebsk

If you happen to visit Vitebsk, here are some places you may find interesting:

·                    The Annunciation Church;

·                    St. Barbara Church;

·                    Trinitarian Catholic Church;

·                    Vitebsk Town Hall.

If this beautiful city is far from you and you have no time to visit it, just buy this marvellous piece of oil painting by Leonid Afremov and enjoy the charming atmosphere of this Belorussian city.

I 'm a big fan of your work! So I took the chance as a member at deviantart, to buy on your birthday, your offered artworks (post stack). Believing to bye the work which was shown on the picture, I struck to it. Today the artwork was delivered and what I can say I'm really disappointed! The motive ist not what I wanted and what I believed to get and it's also not this what you shown in all of your posts! Sorry but this picture is more than disappointing! Unfortunately, I have deleted the journal stack! Therefore, I will cancel my second order now! Sorry for that you're surely an amazing artist!

I just received a very large Misty Mood and I'm in heaven. I get lost in it. Your work, Mr. Afremov, brings me all kinds of emotions but all under the umbrella of happiness. Thank you again for sharing your talent with the world. You really are making a difference with it!

I seen one of Leonid's paintings and wondered who the artist is. I asked and once I found his site, I bought one of Paris paintings. I have received nothing but compliments on it since I hung in my home. Brilliant artist.
