about this painting:

Not a morning person

There are not many people who like mornings. Some people don’t like mornings because they have to wake up for work, others because they have to go to school. There are plenty of reasons to be not a ‘morning person’.  But is there anything good about mornings? Ask any romantic person and they will tell you that there’s nothing in the whole world that can be compared with the beauty of a sunrise or a sunset. These are two of the most beautiful natural phenomena. And this sunrise painting proves that.

Why you should consider purchasing this original artwork?

  1. The warm yellow glow of the lanterns makes the painting look very warm. It seems as if it uses its light as a blanket to shelter you from the rain. It makes you feel more comfortable. Yellow according to color psychology is believed to be uplifting and offer happiness and hope.
  2. They say the darkest time is before the sun rises. We can clearly see this in the painting as the night sky has a very deep blue color. Leonid Afremov made it look incredibly picturesque with his special palette knife technique. In some places we can still see some stars shining brilliantly with different colors and sending us their hello from faraway.
  3. The glassy wet pavement reflects this carnival of colors as a giant mirror.
  4. We can see that the night is going to be overcome by the daylight soon as the dark blue color is fading and becoming much lighter on the horizon. 

Silhouettes of houses and trees are becoming more and more visible as the sun begins to rise in the east. The sleepy silence of the city is gradually changing into its daily chaos. A new day has come. It has brought new ideas, dreams, happy moments as well as sorrows, tears and sad news. But we still need to appreciate that this day was given to us.
