about this painting:
EARLY MORNING IN PARIS
So different and fascinating
A city of great beauty and irresistible charm, Paris has always inspired artists and poets coming here in search of new ideas. On his numerous trips to the French capital, Leonid Afremov never stopped admiring its picturesque streets and festive mood spilled in the air. That’s why his paintings of Paris are so imaginative and captivating. They beg to decorate your wall and you don’t even need picture frames to give them a final look. Depicting the legendary city at different times of the day and year, the artist shows us the many faces of Paris, and this is one of them.
When two colors work as one
There is something special in early hours when the night is already over, but the morning hasn’t begun yet. The streets are quiet and mysterious in anticipation of the sun, the lights are particularly warm and the shades of the world are strangely delicate and beautiful. This painting is basically the duo of orange and blue with speckles of other colors added for contrast and versatility. Orange is used to depict the rich soft glow coming from the burning lanterns and their reflections in the wet asphalt. We can also see it around cafe and shop entrances where it is mixed gently with burgundy, lilac, blue and green. The rest of the canvas is painted in tender blue that varies from a milky, almost white shade of the sky accompanying the approaching sunrise to a dark violettish color lurking in the depth of the arched windows. Directly opposing each other on the spectrum wheel, these two colors form a strong, yet very soft contrast in which the warmth of orange and the chilliness of the blue are combined to create a profound sense of intimacy.
How can you kill time in Paris before dawn?
When the prospects are sleeping and all the doors are still closed, what are some ways to spend time in Paris until the city comes back to life?
- Walk the deserted streets and admire the unique mix of modern and age-old architecture.
- Have a refreshing drink in one of the half-empty round-the-clock bars.
- Look into the faces of rare by-passers and try to guess the stories of their lives.
- Go to the Seine and feed ducks on one of its bridges.
- Be the first to enjoy a hot cup of coffee and a freshly baked croissant in a local café.
This painting will look adorable in any interior, from a classic-style living room to a modern-designed office. It will fit perfectly into a color-driven room design even if you’re out of picture frame ideas. Always keep your eyes open for the subtle beauty of the surrounding world so delicately reproduced on this canvas by Leonid Afremov!
