about this painting:
Some people think that painting flowers is quiet easy, but that’s not true. Each flower is unique in shape and color and even the largest bouquet doesn’t contain two identical buds. It takes a lot of observation and diligence to learn creating realistic still life paintings, both in terms of composition and technique. There are a number of subtleties to be taken into consideration. And even if you practice a more contemporary variety of art, you still need to be capable of capturing the mood of the flower set, let the viewer feel their fragrance and the tenderness of their petals. Leonid Afremov seems to have no problem with that! Admire this strict yet so touching bouquet painted with vivid strokes of the palette knife!
Dance of petals
Since ancient times, flowers are linked to symbolic meanings and mythological references. And this vase seems to contain a good deal of those. Let’s take a closer look at this colorful arrangement:
- Fresh white daisies in the center of the composition are generally associated with modesty and innocence. The name of the flower literally means ‘day’s eye,’ because it opens at sunrise and closes and sunset. Pure as snow, the bunch of daisies in the picture must have inspired its ‘northern’ name.
- Lush blossom of peony is traditionally connected to prosperity and honor, on one hand, and romance on the other. This flower is especially valued in China. Its purple notes add softness and delicacy to the composition.
- Finally, the bouquet is punctuated by red gerberas symbolizing cheerfulness and simple joys of life. Fifth most popular flower in the world, it is highly praised by gardeners and florists because they are available in multiple colors and easy to grow.
Together, these flowers form a striking bouquet – vigorous and austere yet fragile and sensuous. It has the clarity and strength of winter combined with the brightness and gentleness of spring. The neutral background emphasizes every single shade of the palette and makes the painting universally suitable for any room design. When it comes to painting flowers, still life pictures and object sets, Leonid Afremov does his best.
