about this painting:


Life in a castle

There are a lot of historical sites in Europe. As artists create their paintings for sale, Europe is presented in the most beautiful way on them. What can be more attractive in a tourist booklet than photo of European castle? You will not hang a photo on the wall but buying an original oil painting with a castle is a good solution. It will remind you of the trip you’ve made in summer.

The colors are very saturated on the Afremov’s painting “Brussels - Castle Saventem”. Water matches the sky: it is almost of the same color. A well-lit castle is reflected in the water and this makes the place stunning. Any person would agree to live in such place if the castle is renovated and features modern amenities. It is hard to imagine more picturesque place than this.

Belgium is a land of castles

The trips are organized to show the most spectacular castles of Brussels to the tourists. Belgium is known for the highest density of castles than anywhere in the world. Some of the castles turned into elegant flower gardens with fountains and stone statuettes, others admire with priceless original oil artwork.  Picturesque gardens, labyrinths, glasshouses and other fantastic things make for an excellent setting for a loving couple that makes a trip to Europe. Everything is so alluring here. Many shows arranged during the trip become a marvel for children as well.

It seems to us that people lived in royal conditions and do not know anything about the challenges people faced at that time. Paintings for sale do not include this point and focus our attention on beauty of the places.

Obstacles of life in a castle

The castle life is very challenging due to the following factors:

·                    It was cold inside as it was hard to keep warmth in such huge building.

·                    Pomp and ceremony made life organized, so a high level of order was necessary on one side, while on the other, smell in the castle was terrible.

·                    Dwellers of the castle faced threats of being attacked by the enemy. They had to defend themselves and erect diverse fortifications.

Looking at Afremov’s painting, we see a beautiful castle that takes rather advantages position. It would be hard for the enemy to attack it because it is located near the water. Such places were chosen purposefully. Additionally, holes were made and filled with water to become inaccessible for attackers.

Estimado Leonid, mi inglés es muy precario, por lo cual voy a expresarme en español. Descubrí sus pinturas por un reto de arte en facebook, dónde buscando encontré a Rain Princess. Es mi pintura favorita en todo el mundo y gracias a usted la tengo en mi living. Es realmente muy bella, los colores, el mensaje que transmite. Realmente estoy completamente enamorada de su obra y no puedo parar de observarla. Mis contactos se están contagiando también. Compré Ballet Magic para mi madre, quién la espera con ansias. Y también estoy esperando dos obras más suyas para mi propia colección: Melody of the night y Dance under the rain. Gracias por tanta belleza! Siento mucha admiración por su arte.

I received a painting that I just love love love. But after a couple of weeks the painting is still wonderful but it is very noticeably rippling. I guess the canvas was not pulled tight enough on the frame. I will have to get fixed properly on the frame. However I still adore this painting.
