LIGHTS IN THE NIGHT

Splendid abstract painting techniques

When we think of realistic or abstract painting, we think first and foremost about great painters and their great works. To become part of art history, one ought and has to produce something truly unique and win the affection of connoisseurs of art. However, every history is being created now, so it is for us to decide whether Leonid Afremov with his amazing oil painting techniques, palette knife tricks and extensive color palette is worth becoming a great artist. His interesting realistic and abstract painting techniques have already proven Leonid Afremov to be a great master, so now his art needs your hearts and your perceiving imagination, where his artworks can obtain meaning. So let’s set our eyes on this fascinating cityscape every part of which shines, glows and sparks and make an attempt to discover its hidden message.

The need for the opposite

An abstract canvas needs a particular feeling behind its forms and colors, and a realistic painting needs an abstract background hiding itself behind the depicted objects regardless of the painting manner and concepts you use. The sweetest summer happens in our mind in the winter, and our love for snow reaches its summit when we are tired of the unbearable heat. In a similar way, we need light when the world is plunged into darkness, and this is what the enchanting picture by Leonid Afremov with its bright palette and vivid texture is about. We can see it in every stroke of the palette knife carefully positioned on the canvas in a way that makes everything in the painting alive. We can nearly hear the silhouettes move and the water trickle down the road, we can almost hear the sounds of rain, footsteps and distant talks and feel the chilly breeze on our faces. That’s the main thing about art – the ability to convey the atmosphere of any place and make us feel like we actually were there… So let’s take a walk down this rainy street, shall we?

The burning darkness

Thanks to a wide range of abstract painting techniques, oil paints of the highest sort and subtle choice of imagery, we can clearly imagine ourselves in this quiet lantern-lit street. Some passers-by are going before you, and everyone is keeping their umbrella above their head. The rainwater has covered the whole ground with its chilly mirror, and the invisible clouds in the sky still have plenty of raindrops for the dark city. The black windows of the building on the right of the pavement become darker against the background of its yellow walls. However, the darker and the moister the night air becomes, the more furiously the street lamps are burning. Their frantic glow is setting the very night on fire, so that the moist air around the lamps is fiery yellow, as well as the walls of the house and the autumn leafage of the tree standing nearby. Due to the amazing oil painting techniques, trees, lanterns and buildings look very real and eerie at the same time. Thus will you go farther under the mysterious lamps, and, due to them, it will be impossible for you to forget about the light in the kingdom of darkness.

I purchased "Lovers 2" from Leonid's online store in September 2016. I am very impressed by Leonid and Boris's efforts at customer service. I received progress report e-mails as my order was received, processed, being created, shipped, and delivered to Florida. Within a few short weeks, I received my stunning painting in prestine condition with a certificate of authenticity and am so excited to show it off to all my friends and family. Thank you for a great experience and a fantastic painting! It is even more beautiful in person.
