about this painting:
Revival - large wall decor
We know Leonid Afremov as a prominent cityscape author that prefers quiet parks and noisy sidewalks to majestic forest and water views. This canvas is quite different, though. Here we can see Afremov adjusting his unique palette knife painting technique to a new artistic concept characterized by finer lines and subtler transitions of shades that can be observed in live nature. Instead of his usual rough color splashes, he uses delicate, carefully arranged strokes to replicate the sophisticated pattern of bare tree branches.
While the foreground is painted in a very distinct, shape-conscious manner, the background is filled with random Impasto strokes creating a sense of rustling leafage and mist-covered mountains that look very Afremov. One should also note the mastery demonstrated by the artist while painting the sunset. The sky looks very vibrant and spectacular, yet soft, gentle, almost melancholic. The white splash of the sun is spilling out into the sky like an egg sizzling on a frying pan and pouring its glow all over the scene.
What differs this painting from other works by Leonid Afremov is the choice of colors. The landscape is basically created using only black, brown and shades of red, orange and yellow. There is a drop of green in the tree tops and some blue in the corner of the sky, which adds balance to the composition and refreshes the eye, but the main part of the artwork is painted in dark warm colors. That’s very uncommon for Afremov, with his motley cityscapes and great love for unexpected color combinations, but it makes the painting even more unique and appealing.
