about this painting:
CREATURE OF THE NIGHT
“I love cats,” Afremov once said. “I have a cat, Max. All cat and pet oil paintings, I write inspired by him. " Afremov as a true artist is able to create his own special world. We can see this world on his canvases and understand that this is a world of freedom, joy, coziness and happiness. Afremov believed that cats fit into this world perfectly.
Look at this cat Max oil painting. The warm palette of the cat’s fur breaks the darkness of blue and even black tones. The big eyes and pointed ears are accented. No doubt we witness in front of us a mystical keeper of comfort in the family, not a single important detail will slip away from him, he must know everything and make sure that everything is right. This is his mission, but, at the same time, he leaves himself freedom of action. The artist skillfully conveys this feeling by hiding the silhouette of the animal. It is impossible not to fall in love with such an important and mysterious cat.
Moment of motion
The painting was done in a unique manner by Afremov with a palette knife. The artist admitted: "I do not like ready-made colors - they are dead," he believed that the whole picture should be painted in one session. This manner of writing is perfectly suited for conveying the momentary moment of the moment, movement, dexterity and reaction of the animal:
- blue shades, vague silhouette of the cat, written in highlights, and at the same time clearly drawn eyes and ears - everything conveys rapid movement, the dynamics;
- the center of the composition is warm, it gives a feeling of comfort, so characteristic to the common image of cats;
- of course, the artist’s great love for animals is felt, an understanding of their nature and beauty.
Without any doubt, this painting will suit even the most refined interior, complementing it and creating a feeling of tenderness and comfort.
