about this painting:



Many people are dreaming about starting an art career. They feel the urge to express themselves and to show to other people their works but do not know where to start.

Every artist has a different path. Some of them, like Leonid Afremov have always known what they wanted to do in life and study it at schools, universities or colleges in order to get the best formal education possible. Many world renowned creators never learned how to do draw, write or compose music but manage to understand how to do it in a practical way. They became professionals starting as dilettantes.

Why do such people start creating? They draw, sing and dance because they feel inspired, and such a little thing as lack of experience cannot stop them.


Inspiration is much more important than technique in almost every field, except for surgeons maybe. Every artist has something or someone serving as a source of creative potential. Let us look at some examples of famous artists and their sources of inspiration.

  1. Frida Kahlo

This famous Mexican surrealist is famous for her self-portraits, so no wonder that the biggest source of inspiration for this creative person was herself. Her creativity became to flourish after a terrible accident that made her stay in bed for many months. This pain opened a new door for her as an artist.

  1. Andy Warhol

Father of pop-art, Andy Warhol during all his life was inspired by pop-culture in its different manifestations. He did not believe in moral art that makes a human soul better but in art as an attraction for masses. That is why the subjects of his works are frequently Campbell soup cans, Coca-cola bottles and famous actors and actresses.

  1. Leonid Afremov

This contemporary artist has many sources of inspiration but mainly he finds it while traveling. Another powerful motivation to create are women. For him, women embody all the beauty and grace of this world being weak and strong at the same time.

For example, look at this canvas that you can easily purchase online. A woman silhouette that is visibly sensual but not pornographic is full of grace and femininity. The posing woman’s face is unclear because it is more like a collective image than a defined person.

If we are talking about the palette of this painting, you can notice lots of red and pink that are true signs of love theme. This painting is very charming and exciting.

My painting Melody of the Night arrived today and I am so in love with it! I keep looking at the beautiful colors, the lights, the reflections, the couple walking by the water. It adds so much personality to my home.
