about this painting:
Attraction of the sea
Old ships in the old dock never stop attracting us. There is a story behind every ship – almost all of them had their days of glory. Even people who have art works without degree are inspired by the sea and create extraordinary works thanks to this inspiration. They like to come to the pier to watch at the ships and water rockingthem on the surface. If you do not understand the ships lyrics, you can hardly feel the nostalgia that is common for all who are fond of sea and find inspiration in rippling water and the sound of waves beating against the shore. This strange love is just inexplicable, but Leonid Afremov tries to explain it to you with the language he knows best – the language of images, created in his unique impressionist manner. He actually transfers the emotions onto the canvas. His goal is not only to reproduce images, butto make us feel that atmosphere.
Ideal surrounding for creativity
We are captivated by the sea and even young artists show better results when they paint by the water. Taking art works they try to improve the results with every means possible. If any environment can be helpful to some extent, this is certainly sea or lake. Some writers travel by ships or yachts to find inspiration and tap into creative spirit. Therefore, if you want to develop your career in art, you should think of a place that will affect your creativity and imagination. Leonid Afremov paints the houses on the shore. The specialists discovered that:
Mind is more responsive when we observe water on the coast of the ocean, sea shore, and bank of the river or lake.
The depth of the sea brings forth some philosophical issues as it represents great unknown with mysteries hidden on the bottom. We want to unravel them, make propositions and develop imagination.
Why do old ships and the sea attract us?
It seems that some potent power putsus the mood to think about important, deep things in thatmoment. And we love it. When we look at the sea, ships and everything connected with water, there is something mesmerizing in this activity.
We see the horizon but are not aware what is behind it. Every person is sure that boundless riches are somewhere there – far away from this place. But we can reach them if we dare to travel there.
