about this painting:
Across the Ocean
Evening at the sea
When we see the image of ships in the open sea or ocean, we have associations with naval battles, but Leonid Afremov’s painting is exceptionally peaceful – it is imbued with calm and tranquility and we feel these emotions thanks to the bright colors that artists use on their canvases. They are always bright but at the same time in them we find soft shades that help us relax and feel calm. But in this painting we also find dark shades. They serve solely to show the weather – apparently the sea storm has just passed and the sea is in a state of calm. No one knows for how long it will last, but nothing prevents us from rejoicing this wonderful weather that reigned over the sea. It pleases both the sailors who are in these small vessels or in the port waiting for the weather, and the seabirds who got out to hunt for fish. Everyone knows that the weather at sea is very changeable. And therefore, it was very important to use this moment for the most useful things – for animals, of course, hunting is vital and therefore with the first rays of the sun they go for food.
As often happens in the paintings of Leonid Afremov, the main source of bright colors is the sun, but in this painting the source is somewhat muffled – the sun is hidden behind rain clouds. Apparently, the artist depicted a sunset in his painting and most likely the ships depicted in the sea today will remain on the pier and only tomorrow will be able to go on your next sea voyage.
On the seashore
Man began to conquer the sea a very long time ago. The place for launching ships – the main means of conquering – is the pier. And now we want to bring to your attention a list of the most picturesque piers in the world:
- Kastrup Pier, Kastrup (Denmark). This unusual pier is built in the shape of a semicircle that blocks the swimming area from the ocean, which allows visitors to plunge, without the risk of being carried out to sea. The pier is made of wood resistant to sea water, and at night it is lit to emphasize the beautiful curved wooden walls.
- Huntington Seaside Pier, California (USA). With a length of 560 meters, this beautiful California pier is one of the largest on the west coast of the United States. During World War II, it was the base for the submarine fleet and was guarded by the military.
- Los Muertos Pier, Puerto Vallarta (Mexico). This 328-meter pier was designed by architect Jose de Jesus Torres Vega and opened in 2013 as part of the regeneration scheme of the city of Puerto Vallarta. Construction costs amounted to $ 2.4 million. The pier is especially popular among couples in love: historically, this area is one of the most romantic areas of Puerto Vallarta.
- Scheveningen Pier, Scheveningen (Holland). The Scheveningen pier stands out among ordinary piers in that it consists of four separate elements connected by passages. The longest pier in the Netherlands was built in 1959 and bought by the Van Der Valk Hotel for a nominal price in 2001. Length: 382 meters.
It seems to us that this painting by Leonid Afremov is able to make you fall in love with the sea even more. Looking at it, we literally feel this element – waves and the cries of gulls and everything else that we are used to associate with the sea.
