about this painting:

RAIN BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Happy moments

Christmas is a magical time of the year, even when it’s not snowing. There is a special atmosphere in the air, people’s faces shine with smiles and the entire world seems to catch its breath in anticipation of a miracle. And this miracle isn’t something that happens to you all of a sudden. It’s built out of small things surrounding us every day. If you just open your eyes and learn to notice magic all around you, Christmas mood will stay with you for the whole year! Especially if you have a painting like that on your wall. Plunge into a joyful aura of winter holidays and catch a glimpse of bright December rain depicted in the vibrant traditions of Post-Impressionism!

Rainy romance

Leonid Afremov is always ready to share his happy emotions with the viewers and he successfully communicates them to us using a special palette knife technique. At first sight, it is a chaotic mess of swishy colorful strokes applied at random. But if you look close, you’ll see a certain pattern repeated in street lights, their reflections, tree leaves and even silhouettes of by-passers. Just pay attention to the palette and composition of the picture:

·         Cold shades prevailing at the edges of the canvas are set off by warm hues in the center of the painting.

·         The upper part of the canvas is covered with a patchwork of contrasting strokes, while at the bottom the brushwork becomes more elaborate.

·         Sources of light (three lanterns on the right) are enhanced by their reflections on the wet alley.

·         Tall, dark shapes of trees and lanterns gradually moving away into the distance create a sense of depth and perspective.

·         The lonely silhouette of a girl harmonizes lovely with the entire composition. Her white dress and umbrella echo the sparks of light on the ground and she herself seems to be just one of these reflections.

Testimonials
Words have not been invented yet, describing the sheer beauty of these paintings. I have now bought 5 of your paintings and I'm still looking for more. Your paintings are addicting, like tattoos.

I received the painting yesterday. My wife and I are delighted with it. We really love your style of painting and the wonderful colours you use. Hopefully we will get more from you in the future.

I first fell in love with your work when I discovered it in a Jerusalem gallery. It was absolutely transcendent! I was so sad I couldn't bring it home to the States with me. Some years later, I stumbled again upon your work and name, Mr. Afremov - and found my way to your site. I'm so proud to have your painting - the very same I fell in love with in that gallery! - brightening my home! It is my first real, hand-painted piece of art and it gives me joy to look at and talk about with friends. Thank you! :-)
