Time for romance
In our hasty world, there is little time for quiet romance and slow walks along the empty night street. Always busy and stressed out, we rarely notice the breathtaking beauty that surrounds us. Old houses squeaking wearily in their sleep, wise trees, solemn and silent in the dark, cozy glow of lanterns lining the wet road and reflecting in its shiny surface… If we stop for a second and look around, we’ll be surprised by how much we are missing. Oil pictures by Leonid Afremov give us a chance to enjoy the charm of the nocturnal city even if the forecast is too bad to go out. Just get comfortable in your chair and watch…
It is late fall and the trees have already turned into giant candles flickering in the wind. The rain just stopped and the entire street is sparkling with myriads of colorful reflections. In the warm light of the burning lamp posts, it looks bright and festive despite the gloomy weather that should have ruined this beautiful night but made it even lovelier instead. The two in the foreground seem to be quite happy with the view that opens in front of them and with each other. They are all alone in the middle of an empty street, walking hand in hand, the girl’s head resting comfortably on her boyfriend’s shoulder. Nothing breaks the perfect harmony of their date. This street, this night and everything it has to offer exists solely for their love. And even the sullen sky suddenly bursts into a firework of colors and falls down on the desolate city that keeps sleeping peacefully unaware of the miracle that is happening outside.
Secrets of style
Leonid Afremov is known as a prominent author of modern wall art loved all over the world. During his long career, he has created hundreds of paintings you can view and order at this official online gallery. However, his greatest accomplishment is the unique painting manner based on the Impressionist technique called Impasto. That’s how his works are created:
- The artist uses a palette knife as a brush for producing various visual effects.
- Pressing the blade into fresh paint with different strength and at different angles, he applies strokes of various shape and intensity, from small dots to long streaks.
- Finally, he uses the knife to scrape into layers of paint creating distinct three-dimensional texture.
All this makes Afremov paintings very stylish and simply beautiful. If you are looking for modern wall art, canvas prints and oil pictures to decorate your home, you should definitely consider buying some of his stuff!
