about this painting:

Candles of love

So many faces of love

Love is the crucial topic for all times and spaces; you will hardly ever find a person who has never experienced this feeling. Each of us understands this state in different ways, according to our characters, beliefs and objects of our affection. There are a few major types of love:

  • parent-child love – one of the strongest feelings that unite two dearest people that will never betray each other;
  • affection to pets that are an integral part of our lives;
  • adoration of non-living things – food, clothes, accessories, etc.;
  • love for man or woman that is the source of inspiration and the reason for creating families.

Love can be mutual and unrequited, it can happen at once, from the first sight or it may arise within a long period of time, but it is still one of the most mentioned states in various works of art. The best lyrical songs, impressive pictures, passionate dances are dedicated to this wonderful feeling. If you are a real arts lover, you will definitely like different portraits of loving couples. Take a look at this face painting, and search more here!

Passionate evening

There are a lot of canvases that depict tender embraces and gentle kisses, but it is very difficult to paint passionate moment without making it vulgar. Leonid Afremov chose one of the most impressive face painting ideas, the one that shows the loving couple while making love. They are completely naked, but there are no details about it. The woman’s arm hides her breast, and this gesture of touching her hair makes the picture very sensual and at the same time rather modest. The man is standing behind his partner, holding his arms on her hips. This date is very romantic: we can see candles in the candlestick, a bottle of wine and two half-filled glasses, and one rose that is lying on the floor. You can’t trace any objects on the background, because the room is covered with darkness, and dim light from four candles don’t bring any clarity. Such method helps the viewer concentrate on the feelings of excitement that arise while watching this picture of passionate love. This face painting supplies us with dozens of different emotions, and they are not dedicated only to aesthetic pleasure; this canvas inspires you to love your partner more and brings passion to your apartment!

Leonid's paintings make me so happy! I love his style, use of colour, and creative vision. He is absolutely brilliant!! I have been looking a long time for the perfect pieces of artwork, and to my delight, I finally found them on this website! The two paintings I have are "Misty Mood" and "Amsterdam 1905." They look stunning hanging up on my walls! I can't wait to buy more! :)

Felicitaciones Leonid!!!! Hace muchos años había tenido la inquietud de comenzar a pintar y no lo había hecho hasta que me inspiré en uno de sus cuadros. Su temática me fascina y es muy vívida. Mi padre es pintor y yo tengo esas habilidades, pero no explotadas. Feliz año 2015.

Our sixth painting, Autumn Canal, arrived today! Glorious! Breathtaking! Beautiful beyond description! The colors lift your mood and the fantastic perspective--a sign of true artistry--draws you deeply in. You actually feel like you are walking under the low branches of golden leaves, down a path by a canal. My eyes filled with tears when I first saw it come out of the box. This amazing piece of art is mine in all it's glory! 7 paintings in our family room and the room actually looks larger and more inviting. We already ordered 11 additional paintings: 3 originals and 8 recreations. Everything we have looks sad and drab in comparison, so it gets donated and we get to live surrounded by this magical beauty. We joke that our home is fast becoming the Northern Virginia branch of the Leonid Afremov gallery. Amazing customer support. Thank you Boris and David. You rock!!! Dr Lani Kass
