about this painting:


How winter begins

If you want to make the interior more diverse, you should decorate your room with a painting. You should consider many things when you choose the painting such as interior paint colors, size of the room, style of decoration, furniture and etc. You should follow the rules of balance and symmetry as you create a design scheme and home color scheme of your room.

“Beginning of winter” is an excellent piece of art. The painting marvelously describes the first winter days. Afremov’s way of painting and his unique technique create the volume on the painting so it looks like three dimension art that is so popular nowadays.

Beauty of transitional period

The transitional period is depicted on the canvas “Beginning of winter”: when winter has arrived but autumn is still here, therefore snow covers the ground together with multicolored leaves. The road shines like a mirror and captures the attention. We see a lonely lantern in the street and cars on the road.

The scene is spectacular - this is achieved with fantastic combination of colors that we can see in reality when such transitional period begins. Anyway, this is the end of the autumn. The statement of winter is obvious: it does not give any chances to its predecessor. Even if the first snow melts, the period of leaves rustling underfoot is over. This is sad but it is just one of the cycles of life. Winter brings renewal to nature, which will wake up in spring. And now winter covers the ground with it black coat to give some rest to it before it all starts anew.

Rules for creation of a perfect room

“Beginning of winter” can do a great job for interior if you hang it on the wall because contrasted colors on the painting fantastically suit the design of any room. Moreover, white color gives the feeling of something clean and new. It will refresh any design and make it more diverse.  If you place it on the wall with other paintings, you should do it in a right way. Follow these three simple rules:

·                    Think of the perfect arrangement of your artworks on the wall, especially when you deal with a grouping of art.

·                    Visual balance is important when grouping of art is placed on the wall. Some paintings are heavier and weight of the paintings influences perception, as well.

·                    You should find the middle to hang a combo of arts.

Follow these rules and “Beginning of winter” will become a beginning of your stylish home.

je viens de recevoir ma peinture, j'attends avec impatience de la faire tendre pour pouvoir l'accrocher, mais je l'adore déjà...les couleurs sont éclatantes, fidèles à ce que j'attendais, bref, je suis satisfaite et j'en achèterai sans doute une autre dans quelques mois

I received my 'Spirits by the lake' painting today and I can't stop looking at it. It is very subtley different from the original but this does not distract in any way. The subject matter, and the combination of colours are beautiful. It's taking pride of place in my living room. Thank you Leonid.
