about this painting:
Mystery of the Night 2
The onshore city
Leonid Afremov is glad to present to your attention his next seascape under the name Mystery of the Night 2. It is worth noting that despite the name of the painting, it still depicts an evening and not a night, or even more likely early morning – the sky is already painted in orange and yellow colors. Besides, on the horizon we see a rather rich palette of colors – violet, blue, dark blue orange, different shades of gray and white – all this tells us that the dawn is very close, it is just about to illuminate the coastal city and the sun will flood the painting with its rays. The yachts that are now quietly swinging on the waves will certainly go off on a voyage. They, by the way, make up the basic composition – in the foreground we see 5 yachts and the masts of a few more are visible closer to the pier. The pre-dawn town located on the hill is still asleep although we see several colorful lights – along with yellow ones flicker some red and orange dots. These lights create an atmosphere of comfort and tranquility giving the city a little magic. They are very beautifully reflected on the sea surface – we see three long, clear yellow lines and one red line. Calm is present everywhere in the painting – in the sky covered with light clouds, in the waveless sea and, of course, in the town itself. However, judging by the name of the painting this tranquility adjoins to certain mysticism – after all, we see quite a lot of dark shades. It is namely they that give certain mysticism to the painting.
Beauty near the water
Perhaps the majority of the most beautiful and interesting cities in the world are located right by the water. And here we collect the best coastal cities that you might visit:
- Oakland, nicknamed the "City of Seamen", is known for its black sand beaches and such attractions as the Auckland Art Gallery, which contains more than 15,000 works of art. Plus, from here you can visit the locations of the "Lord of the Rings", as well as enjoy the tropical forests and thermal springs.
- In Barcelona you can enjoy art and architecture, including the famous works of Antoni Gaudi, such as the Sagrada Familia and Park Güell. In addition, you can please yourself with tasty cuisine and enjoy the night life of the city.
- Vancouver, a city in British Columbia, is known for its environmental movements and plans to become the greenest city in the world by 2020.
We hope that this painting will always bring tranquility and comfort to your home filling it with the romantic atmosphere of the sea.
