about this painting:
We love the sea in any of its manifestations, but if we look at the sea paintings of Leonid Afremov depicting this element, then we will see that these are mainly landscapes imbued with calm and serenity. Everything is harmonious in these paintings. And we literally hear a slight noise of waves. Such seascapes inspire the artist to work. As a result, they give birth to paintings like this sea painting. The sense of calm is achieved by means of soft colors – blue, pink, and turquoise. They are very light and also give us a sense of lightness. In fact, in this painting you can find a huge number of colors that the artist used to depict both the sea and the sky. For example, the darkest colors in the sky we find where black clouds are concentrated. These colors are also reflected in the sea but they are no longer so dark. We also see the setting sun peering through the dark clouds. This is the brightest object in the painting. It creates amazing color contrast. But despite this, everything looks very harmonious.
Look at the sea! Where do you think it is? But in fact it’s quite difficult to say. Especially considering that Leonid Afremov was an avid traveler, he traveled literally the whole globe, visited many places and, of course, visited many seas. So we can say with equal certainty that the artist depicted a north or a south sea on this canvas. But we will nevertheless reveal a secret for you – this magnificent sea painting still depicts the North Sea. Leonid Afremov was so impressed with the landscape that he simply could not but capture it on his canvas. Fortunately, we now have a unique opportunity to enjoy it on the site. But of course, nothing prevents you from buying it right now to always be able to enjoy this seascape at home.
Using certain colors, the artist conveys certain emotions. The choice of colors is very important especially for impressionists and, of course, Leonid Afremov knew exactly which color expresses which emotion. Surprisingly, the simpler the plot of the painting, the more expressive it is. This statement also applies to this painting. You will probably be interested to compare this canvas with marine paintings by other artists. Fortunately, many of them are available on the Internet. But we can say right away what is the advantage of Leonid Afremov’s paintings – they are very bright, bright not only in terms of colors, but also in terms of expression of emotions.
Leonid Afremov certainly had his own style, and we can highlight some features that are characteristic of all his paintings on the marine subject:
- the horizon line stretches from the left edge of the painting to the right. Thus, we have an impression that the horizon is endless. Often when we see the sea landscapes of Leonid Afremov, our attention is focused precisely on this detail. And we do not pay attention to the other elements of the painting.
- what emotions do the sunset paintings by Leonid Afremov convey? Pleasant calm and peace. This is how sunset in nature affects us and how sunset affects us in the artist’s painting.
- but looking at the sea painting we experience not only pleasant emotions, we also have a feeling of anxiety that we experience when a storm approaches. The reason for this is the clouds that we now and then meet on the canvases.
In any case, we are sure that the paintings of Leonid Afremov give you mostly pleasant emotions.
