about this painting:
A GREY VEIL
The man has done everything possible to stop being dependent from the weather. It is the first condition on which a human turns from a scared and powerless animal like any other species into a proud and omnipotent creature. However, there are things that are sometimes beyond our control, and one of them is our mood. In many cases, it still depends on weather:
- For example, we often feel blue or sleepy during rainy weather.
- On the contrary, a sunny day can make even the gloomiest person smile and enjoy life at least a little bit.
Not all of us have a possibility to enjoy warm and sunny weather every day. Rainy weather and grey sky have their own advantages. For example, they make us stay at home and do important work or study. Anyway, if there is sunshine in your soul, you do not really need it to shine up in the sky, do you?
RAINY PAINTING THAT WARMS YOU UP
Not only can the weather warm you up but also art. Luckily, there are a lot of sunny people in our world, and even if you at the moment do not feel like it you can always get warm near somebody else.
Leonid Afremov is one of such people. He enjoys making other people feel better, and this is the main goal of his art.
Long dull days will seem unpleasant in a presence of his canvas, like this beautiful rainy painting. You can see a busy evening street lit with cozy artificial light. You notice people strolling down the street under their cute colorful umbrellas.
The light seems to be pouring from the painting into the room when stand just in front of it. Afremov chooses to paint only one source of light, just in the middle of the composition, which is a powerful and expressive decision. This way the street looks like a tunnel, which in many cultures is associated with troubles and death, that has a promising exit into a better world without any problems. It gives hope to the view without being too allegorical and offending someone’s beliefs. It reminds us not to forget that every cloud has a silver lining. The rain will end and the sun will shine again.
Afremov’s technique here is simply flawless. He does not leave too clear lines and does not let bright colors ruin the general impression from the painting. Everything is in harmony and looks just gorgeous.
