about this painting:


Different concepts in floral painting

We can trace different concepts in link flower painting looking at the famous creations of impressionist artists and Afremov’s painting “Chamomiles”. A hugebouquet of color ful flowers takes the biggest part of the painting. The central chamomilesare painted clearly in comparison with the flowers on the edge of the bucket that almost merge with background. You will not see a sophisticated vase on the canvas. The vessel that keeps the bunch of chamomiles is rather modest and looks like a simple transparent jar.

It is interesting to note that coloristic solution also contributes to blending effect. The flowers are bright in the middle but the ones on the rimare of blue color. Taking into account that the background is also blue, the painter connects the foreground and background in this way.

Flower paintings: Impressionist common features

This is a common thing for Impressionism not to make distinctions between the foreground and background. Afremov often resorts to it. All objects in his artworks are of equal importance and he does not emphasizes some of them for no reason.

In this way, all elements of the composition complement each other beautifully and make one unity. The background is somewhat wavy and this creates texture on the canvas.

Looking at flower painting gallery by famous artists we look at the way the still life is formed, we will see different approaches to painting. For instance, the greatest French realist Gustave Courbet developed a new concept of still life in his work. His achievements:

·                    The immediacy of contact with nature and democracy underlying his work, returned vitality, richness and depth to the West European still life.

·                    Courbet became the first master of the XIX century, who established a school in still life.

Influence of Edouard Manet on still lifes
Further development of realistic still life got in the works of Edouard Manet. Courbet also played a role in the formation of Manet’s still life. A close approach to nature unites both artists. However, they had different understanding of the challenges and opportunities of still-life painters. Where Cour bet sought to empha size the manifestation of the eternal passion of common laws of life, Manet tried to penetrate thee lusive, individual nature of the subject through external fixation and random qualities. Therefore, Manet seems to be less thorough in comparison with Courbet. But this artist was irreplaceable where beauty, available for eyes, is depicted. His works are unsurpassed.

We bought "Freshness of Cold" a while ago, and we are absolutely in love with it. The purchasing process was easy and issue-free, and the painting came even earlier than promised. We've just bought our second (and third) paintings--we can't have enough! Simply fantastic, beautiful work.

I randomly found Mr. Afremov's art while searching around Deviantart. Ever since I first laid eyes upon the bright colors and breathtaking paintings I have found myself obsessed. My searching led me to his personal website. I followed him on facebook for some time too before making a purchase. It all seemed too good to believe. I placed my order, purchasing "Night of Expectations" and "On the Way to Morning". I was overcome with such excitement and eagerly waited until I got the email confirming that they had been shipped. When they finally reached my home I eagerly opened the package and literally sat in front of my treasured paintings and just took in every detail for probably 20 minutes. I was so eager to get them hanging on my wall. They look fabulous! I keep eyeing the site and checking out the deals. I am positive that this will not be my last purchase! Thank you for providing the world with such wonderful and inspirational art! Thank you for making it very affordable as well!
