Ballerina Preparation

The beauty of ballet

When choosing a painting, you should pay attention to its size. In addition to the usual parameters such as height and width, the canvas has another one – depth. What is this parameter? French artists began to isolate it in the 19th century. They began to subdivide the paintings into different formats taking into account various parameters such as shape, which can be the most diverse – square, rectangular, round, oval. The form is correlated with the genre of the painting. How? Well, for example, artists believed that paintings related to the marine theme should be as wide as possible, that is, have a rectangular shape. Indeed, such a form allows you to show how wide the sea horizon is. As for landscapes, sometimes the middle form is used, that is, the square. Thus, in the paintings, everything looks proportionate and harmonious. Now each format has its own number. For example,

- 8F (46 × 38)

- 15P (65 × 50)

- 20M (73 × 50).

But of course, not all paintings can be attributed to any particular format. For example, some large canvas prints by Leonid Afremov don’t fit into any format.

The size of an artwork

 You probably noticed that the larger the canvas the more expensive it is. And it is quite natural because the artist spends much more time for its creation. What if you need a large-sized picture, but you don’t have much money? A great solution would be to buy a print. In it you will find the same bright colors as in the original oil canvas. In addition, it will also look good in your interior. However, do not buy too large canvases. It is worth considering the real size of your room. Too large canvas will look bulky and disproportionate; it will violate the general concept of your wall art.

Lightness of color

 In this painting, the artist Leonid Afremov collected different colors in different places. On the right we find cold shades, and on the left are warm ones. Such a choice of shades has a certain meaning. As the name implies, the ballerina is only preparing for the performance, and therefore the right side of the painting is still waiting, but it will also warm up with bright colors as soon as the performance starts. Whatever paints the artist used, he always succeeded in creating very vivid works.
