about this painting:
RAINY DAY IN VENICE
All colors of Venice
On the Piazza of San Marco curious tourists have gathered round their guide. They can’t wait to hear exciting stories about the wonderful place there are in! Real Venice, not the one you’ve seen in the photos, would ravish even the most doleful traveller! Doesn’t the piece of oil art here prove it?
Motley umbrellas in the foreground set the tone of this canvas by Leonid Afremov – they create the atmosphere of a holiday. That’s because we associate bright hues with something positive. And you don’t have to be an expert in psychological properties of colors to know that:
- Yellow is the color of light. One of the first yellow things which comes to our mind is the sun.
- Red is often associated with love and passion.
- Green brings peace and calmness.
- Blue is the color of water.
- Purple signifies good intuition and extraordinary abilities.
Together this gay palette symbolizes the tourists’ enthusiasm about visiting the city and their admiration about it! When you’re in Venice, it can’t be otherwise!
Light and rain
And what about the background of this dreamy oil artwork? It’s not as colorful as the foreground indeed. There is a facade of St Mark’s basilica depicted in it – the most famous building of the Piazza. To the left, we can see part of another building situated close to the group of tourists. So, maybe, their excursion will start with it. The viewer can also notice one more important detail of this painting – a big streetlamp. Rain is the king of Venice today, but it’s not the winner of the game. People aren’t disappointed about the weather as they’ll walk on the well-lighted paths. By the way, there is something romantic about streetlamps! Don’t you think?
See it differently!
Leonid Afremov likes the rainy theme which has become a distinguishing feature of his works of art. With a special Impasto technique, the painter turns every cityscape into an unforgettable canvas. His rain adorns the roads, the houses and nature in general. Afremov totally changes our attitude to it. We usually connect rainy weather with sadness, but the artist’s characters are happy to walk in it! Leonid teaches us to look at habitual things differently, to open their other sides and always stay in high feather! So when looking for oil art for sale, don’t forget to visit Afremov’s online gallery and purchase one of his incomparable works!
