about this painting:
Our whiskered buddies
Who doesn’t like cats? These cute purring fur balls can be seen in almost every home. Centuries ago, people used to hold cats for one particular purpose – because of their extraordinary vermin catching talents. But today we treat them as members of the family and faithful companions that stay with us no matter what and never stop loving us. Graceful and mysterious, proud and tender, playful and adorable, cats have taken their special place by our side. Leonid Afremov is also a big cat lover. And we can clearly see it by the number of cat paintings in his online gallery. This one stands out, though. Let’s see what makes it so peculiar.
Although cats are just animals, they have feelings too. Leonid Afremov tried to show this side of our feline friends in his amazing painting called ‘Cat Kiss.’ The canvas depicts two lovely cats caught in the downpour. The rain is falling all around them, but they don’t notice it. Safely hidden under a large umbrella, they hold each other in their arms (or paws?) and seem to be oblivious to everything else. The artist portrayed his heroes wearing human clothes, which makes them look just like any regular couple having a romantic date in the park. Those fond of cats just can’t leave this adorable painting without attention!
Traits of style
However, the cat theme isn’t the only advantage of this piece of canvas art. The artist’s technique deserves a round of applause as well:
· The vibrant palette used by the artist immediately catches the eye and emphasizes the joyful mood the painting.
· Performed in an Impressionist manner, this picture is a delight to look at. Loose swishy strokes fill up the entire canvas turning it into a whirlpool of colorful splashes.
· Instead of a brush, Leonid Afremov uses a palette knife which adds texture and expressivity to his work.
