about this painting:



Impressionism is one of many art genres. It appeared in the end of 19th century in France and still has a lot of followers all over the globe.

The main point of interest for impressionists is to transfer a big and constantly changing world on canvas. In order to do this they seek to spend less time in their workshops and more time outside watching the nature au plein air.

They avoided harsh contours and black color. Their canvases are always full of bright colors and dreamy shapes. You can easily recognize impressionistic works because they are so colorful and joyful. All impressionists are optimists by definition.

One of the most well-known impressionists of our time is Leonid Afremov. You can see his works all over the internet, on different forums dedicated to art and in social networks. He is famous for how deftly he uses color on his paintings in order to recreate his emotions and thoughts.

Trying to catch the past

A mysterious alley on the painting looks like a dream. The combination of blue and lilac palettes makes us think about something magical and unreal. The alley is  almost empty, except for a lonely figure in the middle. We cannot see this person’s face but we understand that it is a female silhouette under an umbrella.

Usually, you can see bright lights on Afremov’s paintings. Its sources can be windows or lanterns that emit very warm and radiant light. However, on this painting the light are much more tender. They are so gentle because they belong to the past and not to the present.

The purpose of this painting, just as of many other paintings, is to recreate the artists’s emotions at a given moment of the past. Afremov cares a lot about his inner life. His memories and feelings are the main source of inspiration for him. Meanwhile, his canvases serve as sources of inspiration for their owners because they are so energetic and positive.

The Fog of the Passion is stunning in person, this is my 2nd painting and it is as vibrant and beautiful as my first (Rain's Rustle). Leonid is absolutely a favorite artist of mine!
