about this painting:


The magic of the rain

We easily notice beauty on colorful paintings likes those created by Leonid Afremov, but we can rarely see it in small things surrounding us every day. Just take a late walk after the rain, when lantern lights are spilled in the fog like caramel and the wet asphalt sparkles mysteriously and softly like a second sky full of colorful stars. Everything looks blurred, muffled, yet very luminous and captivating. The delicate mixture of night, rain and mistslowlyfills the empty streets with quiet magical shine and making you wonder whether you are really seeing it with your own eyes or just dreaming.

What mysteries are hiding in the mist?

This painting is remarkable in many ways. First of all, you can’t ignore the beautiful palette of colors flowing from orange into pink, from crimson into violet, from blue into green and back. The shades are very gentle and deep, they represent a continuously evolving theme rather than being just a patchwork of motley strokes as we can see on other Afremov pictures. Born in the heart of a glowing lamp bulb or in the depth of a dark arch, they spread around and merge with each other forming subtle transitions and spectacular contrasts. The next thing that catches your eye is the amount of light in the painting – not of a harsh dazzling variety, but rather akin to soft shimmer cloaking the city like a warm colorful aura. Emitted by the lanterns, the house lights, the rain-soaked asphalt and the mist itself, it illuminates the scene from the inside and makes it even more surreal. Finally, there is also a lot to say about the artist’s peculiar painting style. Covering the entire canvas with short overlapping taps of the palette knife, he adds volume and depth to the picture inviting us to explore its intricate texture. The building on the right is half-eaten by the dusk, its windows opening straight into the night sky. We can only guess what waits for us ahead, in the bright blue mist on the horizon.

I first discovered Leonid’s work on DeviantArt and fell in love with his use of warm and cool colors. After purchasing my first piece for my office at work, I’ve become addicted to his paintings. His technique leaves a beautiful texture on the canvas, and he truly captures the reflections of light on the rain-covered walkways. Everyone who comes into my office stops to admire his work!
