about this painting:
Take a stroll in the rain
Who doesn't love walking down the night city, especially when it has just been washed by a warm summer rain? There is some indescribable romance in treading down a wet road sparkling with magical reflections, listening to the music of the raindrops still falling down the trees and enjoying the feeling of total freedom such weather usually brings up in us. This marvelous cityscape by Leonid Afremov will remind you of those moments!
The ‘City Lights’ painting depicts a quiet city district where you won’t find any brightly lit cafes and pricy restaurants. The street is lined with cozy houses settled along the river bank. The hour is not too late and you can see lights in the windows which reflect in the rippled surface of a peaceful river. You can suppose this place could be somewhere in Europe, in an old town with narrow cobbled streets and its special atmosphere that makes you wander its winding alleys for hours. So what is this atmosphere built of?
· An unnamed night street, lit by several bright windows, is about to fall asleep and share it’s loneliness with the lamp posts.
· A shimmering night river adds luminosity and mystery to the scene.
· A peculiar combination of vibrant colors and passionate strokes won’t leave you indifferent!
· The painting is vivid yet not annoying. It’s made with a palette knife and somewhat reminiscent of Monet style. The strokes are smudged and the image is watery; you can’t discern the details and can only guess them. So much space for your imagination!
