about this painting:
GREECE – HARBOR
Looking forward to Greece vacation
The harbor in Greece can reflect a long history of the country as harbors were the most progressive parts of the village or town. Today we can see here a lot of well-preserved Venetian buildings there that create a unique atmosphere and flavor of the Mediterranean town. One of such towns is shown on the painting “Greece – Harbor”. The houses stand very, very close to each other. They are of different colors in Afremov’s vision. Many excellent restaurants and cafes are located on the waterfront in such locations. Guests of the country can try excellent Greek cuisine and enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the island of Ithaca and white yachts in the harbor. There are excellent pebble beaches with crystal clear water there, so it is worth coming to Greece. If you postpone your vacation for some reason, or do not have a chance to go to Greece, you can always buy a painting “Greece – Harbor” and relax without leaving your house.
The colorful mess of strokes applied by the artist resembles a matte painting, meaning that it creates an illusion of pixelated scenery captured on a broken (definitely in a good way) camera. The view is so captivating and intense that you immediately want to find yourself in this place. There are other reasons to buy art as well.

Afremov's techniques for certain effects
Afremov creates Impressionistic canvases, employing his extraordinary techniques and tools that are not used by other painters. He developed his own way and followed it. It helps to reach many goals and achieve the desired effects. The moonshine is reflected in the water and creates the atmosphere of movement. Hardly recognizable white sails refresh the multicolored bright painting. The strokes that are laid aslant on the top of the painting and then the direction changes and acquires some chaotic confusion and later changes again into horizontal lines. It is like a mix of Impasto, classic impressionism and matte painting techniques. Using diverse colors, the painter turns the whole canvas into a wonderful and dynamic feast.
