The darkest time
They say the darkest time of the day is before the sunrise. The clock struck six times. The morning has come even though it doesn’t feel this way. It looks more like a dark gloomy night with pouring rain outside. You don’t want to get out of your warm bed and go to work. You wish you could stay in and enjoy listening to the monotonous sound of the rain which would take you back to dreamland. The lanterns outside are the only source of light until the sun finally comes out.
What is so special about this painting?
1. This original painting would look very cold without the warm yellow glow of the street lamps. It makes you feel more comfortable. Yellow according to the psychology of colors is considered to be uplifting and offer happiness and hope.
2. The night sky in the picture looks incredibly terrific. It peals with brilliant and vibrant colors. Using his special palette knife technique, Leonid Afremov has made it look very picturesque. The seemingly millions of stars shining brilliantly and blanketing the night heavens are further accentuated in the deep blue sky.
3. The glassy wet pavement reflects this extravaganza of colors as a giant mirror. There are no leaves on the trees to hide even one single light from it.
All of these colors together make the painting look incredibly beautiful and festive in spite of the fact that a dark and rainy morning is depicted in it.
After some time, the night is defeated by the daylight. It’s a brand new day which will bring us new ideas and strength to make them come true, new victories and maybe new failures. Whatever our life has in store for us we need to learn to appreciate every new day and be happy to wake up in the morning - even if the weather is bad.
