about this painting:
Leonid Afremov has two passions – painting and traveling. And he successfully combines them depicting the most memorable moments of his trips on canvas. Aptly using color and light to achieve versatile artistic effects, he creates beautiful and emotional pictures marked by an unmistakable Impressionist style. Born during a visit to the Czech Republic, “Night Boulevard” captures all the quiet and mysterious beauty of this century-old country that springs to life under the artist’s skillful hand.
The magic of color
On this fine art canvas, we see a quiet night street somewhere in the heart of Prague. Lined with dark-windowed houses and half-bare trees, it is basking in a soft glow of lantern bulbs dotting the sidewalk like a string of pearls. The rain-soaked asphalt mirrors the entire palette of the street lights decomposing them into a multitude of fine shades that seem to be flowing down the road along with water. The whole street looks like a big shiny river magically conjured by a swish of the wand.
To capture this effect, Afremov uses his favorite Impasto technique painting the cityscape in short, neatly arranged strokes of different color. Our eye can even discern individual paint layers on the canvas that give the artwork a distinct textured look. It’s like we can actually reach for the buildings and feel the surface of their walls with our finger tips or touch the gentle tree leaves, all wet and slick after the rain. This is part of the magic that happens when you’re looking at Afremov paintings that seem to evolve right before your eyes and reveal new mysteries with every new splash of paint added to the intricate pattern of palette knife strokes.
Interior design ideas
Due to a rich color palette and cheerful theme choice, Afremov pictures fit fine into nearly any interior regardless of the general room design. If you feel like adding this one to your art collection, consider the following tips:
