BICYCLE IN AMSTERDAM
Art of small things
We traditionally believe that art should commemorate grand scenes taking our breath away. Of course, incredible landscapes and paintings of world-famous architectural monuments will always be in demand. But what about small things that have their own quiet sort of charm? A common view we see every day can gain new colors and meaning if you look at it with new eyes. Leonid Afremov does a nice job showing people how that can be done. His modest yet colorful and inspiring cityscapes give us a glimpse of rainy streets, empty parks and thoughtful alleys – there are dozens of those in every city. But the way he does it makes them look very special. Canvases by Leonid Afremov are so bright and vivid that they don’t even need a picture frame! Here color and shape work together creating a scene that tells us more than any words. This is one of such artworks taking us to a desolate Amsterdam street overlooking a quiet water canal…
The day is soggy and sullen. Covered with impenetrable clouds, the sky hangs over the city like a grey blanket. There is no trace of the sun and buildings in the distance are concealed by light mist. Against this cheerless background, the green of the trees looks even fresher, with patches of yellow already seen here and there. Autumn has already touched the city with its drowsy hand. There is dreamy sadness spilled over the water. This walkway, with its old-fashioned railing, colorful houses by the pier, ghostly bridge looming in the distance and lonely bicycle that seems to be part of the scenery – all this envelops you in cozy melancholy. You want to stand here for hours, just observing the calm flow of life and feeling the soft embrace of autumn. And you have this opportunity thanks to Leonid Afremov’s online gallery where you can buy this amazing painting of Amsterdam online!
Picture frame ideas
A good work of art requires proper framing. Although paintings by Leonid Afremov will look great even without one, a well-chosen frame can emphasize the strong points of the canvas and give it a new ‘sound.’ Here are a few recommendations you will find helpful:
· Pay attention to sizes. Measure the canvas horizontally and vertically, then decide how much of the blank space at the borders you won’t to show if there is any. Don’t forget about the matt offset.
· Another thing you should consider is the frame color that should match the main element of the composition or the color that prevails in the painting. Make sure your choice is in line with both the palette of the artwork and the room design.
· Finally, pick a material that complements the painting. Modern canvases like those by Leonid Afremov will benefit from simple frames made of polished wood, plastic, metal or chrome.
Choose the right frame for this amazing autumn cityscape and it will get even lovelier!
