about this painting:


Leonid Afremov’s art

Leonid Afremov uses a palette knife while creating his artworks, and this is one of the most interesting painting techniques in the world. It is difficult to believe that one can, with the help of a palette knife, create true masterpieces that will impress us, and yet everything becomes a magic wand in the master’s hands. Every work of Leonid Afremov’s is a work of high quality and refined style. This lovely canvas is no exception.

A radiant island in the sea of darkness

Looking at this impressive painting by Leonid Afremov, we see some night city. The straight row of yellow buildings stands before us, with the black eye sockets of windows and the mysterious light cast on their walls. The ground is disappearing beneath their foundations, so that the earth resembles the brown sea, wild, blusterous, with rising waves licking the walls of the houses. No person is seen on the street, the city seems to be empty and silent. The black sky is covering the whole space above the city, only the full moon is appearing through the heavy night clouds and is substituting their blackness for deep blue colouring. And a blue castle towers above the drowsy houses, majestic, suffused with the pale and cold radiance of the moon.  Its exquisite black towers seem to be touching the very sky. Its pale walls dilute the gloom reigning everywhere around, and yet we see that darkness is hiding itself inside the castle, for its windows lack for light. This silent shelter of dark shadows is full of mysteries, so that you cannot but want to reach its radiant walls and enter its dark silence.

Castles and their visitors

Castles have been popular among tourists, and there are many reasons why castles are so attractive to people:

·                    Every castle is strongly connected with the history of the place where it is located. Entering a castle, we feel as if we were in the past.

·                    Castles are also very interesting architecturally. Every castle is likely to impress you with its very appearance.

·                    It is said that many castles are inhabited by ghosts; those who are interested in them dream of meeting these beings.

This magnificent picture by Leonid Afremov will decorate any of your rooms and fill it with a piece of the dark romanticism of night and old castles.

I have never found myself drawn to art but recently I came across a picture of one of your paintings, Loneliness is Autumn, and was struck by its depth and beauty. It is breathtaking and visually the most alive piece I have ever seen! I am in the middle of the most excruciating time in my life and this painting moves and stirs me in ways art never has before. It literally eases the ache in my life to look at it. I began the search for the name of the painting or artist and finally discovered this sight. What an amazing giftedness you have Mr. Afremov! I hope to own the painting some day.
