about this painting:
BEFORE THE SUNRISE
The last hour of darkness
We do not know whether the reader of these lines, who is looking for a good paint online, sleeps well or not. It may happen that you are in the habit of sleeping the whole night until morning comes and disperses the darnkess of night, so that, waking up, you always see the mild sunlight. However, there are many people in the world who do not sleep at night, or cannot sleep, or are awaken before sunrise. Those who once happened to enjoy these last hours of gloom are likely to remember how mysterious and enchanting is the world at such moments. This marvellous artwork by Leonid Afremov is a fruit of such a bewitching moment and Leonid Afremov’s impressive craft.
This marvellous paint by Leonid Afremov enchants us with its refined style and deep colours. We see a night street of some European city that is curving rightwards, with several yellow and greenish buildings stretching along the black road. The buildings feature the impressive architecture of the old times. The curving row of lampposts fills the street with its pale yellow glow. The wet pavement knows no paces and cars’ wheels and resembles the dark sky with the comets of lamplights whose tails are smeared on the black asphalt mirror. A thick tree is hiding the night sky from you, and yet you can see its blueness forestalling sunrise. The weak night is lying on its deathbed and is watching the sky that is constantly growing pale above the innumerable shadows slowly disappearing and leaving the world.
The fruitful time
This canvas depicts the last hours of night, and this time can be very productive:
· Any boundary provokes us to use our imagination, so this time between day and night may inspire you to create some masterpiece.
· Naturally, people should sleep twice a day for 4-5 hours, and so did our ancestors that used to awake at sunrise or before it and after a while went to bed again.
At any rate, this marvellous painting by Leonid Afremov will become a perfect decoration for your bedroom and enable you to appreciate the last hours of night even when the sun is shining outdoors.
