about this painting:
Stillness of heart
Calm steady shapes of sunlit buildings at the face of the riverfront is first scene one sees while entering harbor. A charming view that embodies the destination and at the same time the very beginning of your journey. And this everlasting movement makes you experience the magic of anticipation: “Hold on, it’s just starting.” Heart rhythm slows and expectation of a miracle spreads through the body.
Every city has its face perpertuated in its unique architecture. Some of the streets lose their identity in a long chain of similar buildings, others are decorated too heavily lacking one distinct style. Leonid Afremov always tries to be optimistic in his works, that why he chooses only bright palette and outstanding sceneries. In this cheerful sample of fine art, the artist depicted a cute riverfront strewn with fanciful houses. Each building has its own color and style, but they don’t confront each other. On the contrary, they form a perfect ensemble ehnahced by the skillful use of decorative painting techniques. The smooth river surface reflects and multiplies all the shades of the midday street making the scene even more vivid. Wouldn’t you like to visit this unusual place without leaving your house?
Recognize the style
Leonid Afremov is known all over the world for his unique and eye-catching style that he has been perfecting for years. If you have already seen some of his paintings before, you will easily find familiar traits:

The indescribable play of color and light on the canvas makes Afremov paintings particularly vivid and appealing. The combination of paints unchains feelings and emotions releasing the brightest and most present associations.
3. The beauty of the moment.
Years of experience in decorative painting have polished the artistic talent of Leonid Afremov and taught him how to capture life in its fleeting charm. That’s why his paintings always seem alive. That’s why they evoke such strong positive emotions in every viewer. Make your home brighter and cozier with this beautifully painted river view!
