about this painting:
The rage of speed
Leonid Afremov invites you to become a participant in equestrian competitions, or at least a spectator. As always, in his Contenders Fight painting we find a lot of bright colors that serve to image the equipment of athletes. So the riders are worn in:
- red and purple jackets
- blue and brown helmets
- white pants
- black gaiters or boots
Special attention should be paid to the position of the hands of the athletes. Both are fully involved in the horse riding, both holding special whips constantly using them giving no quarter to the animals. Probably, it might seem that equestrianism is very cruel in relation to a horse first of all. This is so. But only in part. During his life, a riding mare runs hundreds of kilometers, but at the same time, great attention is paid to its preparation, especially the physical condition. After all, she must be very hardy and strong.
But let’s get back to our picture. What colors did the artist use in it? In addition to the bright outfit, we see two light brown horse figures while the background of the painting is made in brown shades. They are quite bright and you can even say pastel. Against such a background, the figures of horses on the one hand do not look so bright, but on the other hand they are in good harmony with the overall color scheme of the painting. If you look closely, in the background you can see 3 more riders, but rather only horses, because riders are not visible at all. This creates a mystical feeling that the two figures are not the riders at all but just horses alone. And where their riders have gone is all that remains to be guessed. We suggest that you yourself dream up a little and make some assumptions.
Perhaps this picture will remind you of the plot of some tales that you read a long time ago as a child. We really hope that you can fully enjoy the palette of Leonid Afremov's painting, which as all the other contenders paintings, expresses the most real emotions that athletes are capable of experiencing.
