about this painting:
BY THE SUNSET
TOWARDS THE SUNSET
The sea is always so different in the paintings of Afremov and at the same time written in a unique manner by the author. The sea is always moving, always changing. On this sunset and sea oil painting, you can watch the sea as Afremov perceives it.
The artist often turns to the marine theme. He manages to paint both the cold winter sea, and the stormy spring, and sunny summer. Its sea is never oppressive, it is affectionate, it gives you a sense of peace and happiness.
The painting “By the sunset” is all about that. Here the sea is soft, gentle, caressing. At the same time, there is a bit of mystery and fantasy in this canvas, just like in any other work of Afremov, there is a story. Undoubtedly, this is what draws you to the Afremov’s paintings, everyone can read this story in their own way.
The story could go like this, for example. Warm summer evening. The sun is setting, reflected in the water, coloring both the sky and the sea with bright red-yellow warm tones. Calmness blows from a boat with fishermen approaching the shore. A quiet summer day is coming to an end, and perhaps the weather will change, because in the sky the artist depicted a piece of an already approaching lead cloud. But the boat is offshore. Thus, the author conveys a feeling of comfort, similar to the experience of sitting at home by the window, with a cup of hot tea or coffee, watching the approaching thunderstorm.
The center of the picture is dedicated to the sun, which is about to hide behind the horizon, but manages to illuminate the way for a traveler’s home.
