The master of portrait

This enchanting portrait in oil skilfully painted with a palette knife by Leonid Afremov depicts the most beautiful link face painting is able to produce, which proves Leonid Afremov’s being a true master of its genre. This painting of his is just one of his various canvases dedicated to different artists, which underlines Leonid Afremov’s interest in men of art, for they, due to their profession demanding charisma and originality, are especially interesting to look at.

An artist’s face

Artists often use different face painting images when delivering their performances, and spectators tend to like it, for thus it becomes more interesting for us to enter the artificial world artists are able to create. Moreover, people themselves tend to be interested in this kind of art, for such queries as “face painting cat” and the like have certain popularity on the Internet. Why is it so?

1.            Some people like wearing masks, und this art can be regarded as one more way to put a mask on.

2.            This kind of painting is especially popular amongst children, for they like everything that is unusual and dissimilar to our everyday life.

However, the face of a woman depicted in the fine painting does not need to put a cat mask on, for she herself has the catlike elegance.

A portrait of the artist as a young woman

Looking at this lovely portrait by Leonid Afremov, we see a graceful woman dancing. She seems to be absolutely naked, which turns her into a personification of womanhood. The very depiction of the face of the dancer is vague, which makes us be concentrated upon her perfect body. Her slender right leg iselegantly bent at the knee, while the left one is just a shadow connecting the woman with the ground. Her wing-like arms are raised, which gives her an appearance of a bird-like creature that is going to leave the earth. And yet she is before us, and we can enjoy the perfect whiteness of her body, and the passion she radiates is covering her smooth round breasts with a yellow-red veil, and the whole space around her is burning with its scorching glow.

Buy this magnificent painting by Leonid Afremov and let you plunge into the alluring world of the frantic dance.

I just received a very large Misty Mood and I'm in heaven. I get lost in it. Your work, Mr. Afremov, brings me all kinds of emotions but all under the umbrella of happiness. Thank you again for sharing your talent with the world. You really are making a difference with it!

I have loved your work since I first saw it a couple years ago, but have never been in a position to buy a painting until now. Your 'deal of the day' selection is extensive, and I had a difficult time choosing one from the many I loved in that group. However, I couldn't be more in love with "A Farewell to Anger", and how beautiful it looks on our wall. The colors are even more vibrant in person than they are in pictures. We live in Mexico City, and received the painting much sooner than anticipated. I can't wait until I'm able to purchase another painting. You have definitely secured a lifetime customer and fan.

Last week I received my painting Rain's Rustle and it is already proudly hanging in my living room. Even though it is a bit darker that the original, I still love the beautiful and vibrant colours. Thank you for your art!
