about this painting:
COUPLE UNDER ONE UMBRELLA
Do you think that rain is the most romantic weather? A contemporary artist Leonid Afremov certainly does. He was born in Belorus, which is in Eastern Europe. Unlike many other places on Earth, there are four seasons in this country: a hot sunny summer, a cold snowy winter, a green spring and a lovely golden autumn.
Autumn is probably the most beautiful season for all the people who live in Belarus. The trees start to change the color of their leaves and turn red and yellow. This exciting swirl of colors can be nothing but mesmerizing and inspiring for a profoundly feeling artist.
Leonid Afremov that mostly refers himself to postimpressionists gets very inspired by beautiful thing. So, nature in all its spontaneity and unpredictability is the best point of reference for his works.
For him, the crucial thing is to capture the mood, the emotions, that is why he almost never uses lines and prefer bright splashes of color and wide strokes. Lines are meant to show reality, and colors – the soul of things.
MASTERPIECE IN OIL
You can see a young couple under one umbrella on this painting. Afremov often paints rainy weather and people walking under the rain, however, this work is most likely one of the best. Here Afremov eliminates all the unnecessary details, making the color palette and the composition as clear as possible. Pay attention to small thing that make this canvas a true work of art:
- The lantern. Look at how wonderful and kind of old-fashioned the lanterns seem! They look like gas lamps, and if you have ever seen a real gas lantern, you know that nothing can be cozier and sweeter than this. Of course, you cannot see such old lanterns in Belarus anymore. However, Afremov decided to add some more romance to an evening alley and add this little detail from the past.
- The body language. The couple looks happy, even though we cannot see their faces. Afremov achieves this impression thanks to a powerful body language that he implies. The lovers even keep in step!
- The colors. Have you noticed all the variety of different colors that Afremov uses to paint the tree leaves? Can you find at least one color that he does not use? Yet, the whole picture looks nice and harmonious. It is achieved due to careful blending of colors and same-type strokes.
