about this painting:
People have cultivated such a wonderful feeling as love. Or perhaps, love has led to the appearance of the human race? However that may be, it is as essential as the air we breathe. When kindred spirits meet, a new star is born, and its light illuminates the universe. This romantic work of art by Leonid Afremov tells a story of two young hearts that have fallen deeply in love with each other. Just take a look at the boy’s and the girl’s face paint here – it is the same. It even seems that their faces have merged into one – a single soul in two bodies. And the things around them mean nothing at the moment as it’s time for our beloved to say goodbye. How hard it is to pronounce these words! But life is a merciless judge who chooses for them.
There’s a number of captivating details to analyze about the image:
- First of all, pay attention to the artist’s original painting manner. The way Leonid applies oils onto the canvas is called palette knife technique. Using this special instrument, Afremov mixes and deposits paints thickly onto the surface. The picture, thus, looks three-dimensional.
- The palette of this piece of art consists of various shades of yellow and brown. The boy’s and the girl’s clothes, their hair and skin are depicted in these colors. As well as the background of the work, represented simply by brownish and golden strokes.
- The alikeness of face paint patterns proves how close the two characters are. Leonid Afremov shows his viewer pure tenderness by the example of this relationship. The lady puts her palms on the man’s shoulders and his hands rest on her waist. He doesn’t pull her too close as if he knows that it’s their last embrace. We can’t see the exact features of their face paint designs, because the couple is gripped by emotions. A kiss – that’s all they have for now.
