about this painting:
Trees are the soul of this world. Striking their roots deep into the ground, they take in the entire wisdom of earth and whisper its mysteries in their strange leafy language. That’s why in folklore trees are often considered to have their own consciousness, to think and feel just like we do. If so, the wisest of them must be oaks. Endowed with great strength and energy, they live for centuries witnessing historical events andmemorable moments. On this original painting by Leonid Afremov, we see a magnificent autumn landscape depicting a couple of old oaks in a quiet evening park. Very soft-shaded and gentle, it seems to be filled with some sort of magical light that gives a new meaning to common things.
The first thing you notice about this picture is the delicate palette of predominantly warm colors. Their abundance makes the scene particularly intimate and revealing. If you look at the canvas with an artist’s eyes, you’ll be able to discern:
Yellow for lantern light and the leaf-covered ground.
Orange for the rest of the park in the background.
Maroon, crimson, pink, ginger and moss-green for oak leaves.
Speckles of dark-lilac and bright-greenfor contrast.
Brown for tree stems.
Even the black color of the lamppost isn’t completely black and the white glow of the light bulbs isn’t completely white. Everything is basking in rich golden shine coming from the lanterns, the leaves and the scene itself. The landscape seems to be illuminated from the inside, endlessly beautiful in its self-sustaining harmony.
