While being a typical Afremov picture, “Misty mood” is a rather peculiar sample of canvas art. Rather than the usual patchwork of colorful strokes, the artist uses a more reserved, darker palette mostly represented by shades of blue. With black tree trunks forming a distinct frame around the scene, lonely frost-covered benches looming in the dark and the eerie milky mist stealthily sipping into the background, the painting conveys a sense of cold and desertion.
However, warm circles of lantern bulbs lighting up the foliage and reflecting in the wet asphalt surface mitigate the severity of the landscape and create a cozy, intimate feeling enhanced by the image of a happy couple in the middle of the scene. The two are strolling down the mysteriously illuminated alley under a big umbrella and seem to be quite comfortable with the nasty weather that gradually cloaks the viewer in its inexplicable charm. This painting is obviously one of the most successful art canvas ideas implemented by Leonid Afremov during his creative career.
On his oil paintings, Leonid Afremov often uses such motifs as an empty autumn park, mysterious lantern-lined alleys, wet shiny asphalt and a couple of lovers walking quietly hand in hand. He is attracted by the magic of the rain that transforms the world into a mesmerizing mosaic of reflections and tries to recreate the intricate color patterns surrounding us every day in his oil art. Being a hopeless dreamer, Leonid tries to capture small moments of life filled with beauty and joy. Instead of carefully planning out a magnificent masterpiece, he prefers painting canvas from the bottom of his heart finding inspiration in simple things.
