about this painting:
Our home, our shelter
There is hardly a person who doesn't care about the look of one’s home. Since this is a place we spend most of our time at, we try to make it as cozy and beautiful as possible. This can be done in a number of ways. Redecorating, updating your furniture, using flowers, statuettes and figurines, putting up some wall decor… Design preferences and budget limits differ from person to person, but if you want to add a unique touch to your interior, it’s best to use hand-painted oil on canvas. Those unfamiliar with the basics of home decor will ask: what is this, oil on canvas? The answer is simple: it’s a work of art depicted on a piece of canvas using oil paints. Of course, you can replace it with a cheap print, but it won’t look that colorful and enticing as a painting created with a hand of an artist. Oil paints are distinguished by saturated color and warmth that make them so beautiful and eye-catching. So if you want to decorate your home with a gorgeous oil painting, the online gallery of Leonid Afremov is just the place where you can find one!
Look at this bright cheerful waterscape. It depicts a regatta with a good dozen of participants. Boats with colorful sails are gliding along the pier, trying to outrun the opponents and be the first to cross the finish line. But it’s not that simple: other boats aren’t going to give up. They stubbornly follow the leaders of the contest and are about to get ahead any minute. Although the picture is calm and serene, with blue water sparkling peacefully in the sun and cloudless sky overhead, we can feel the tension between competitors. Their silhouettes are barely visible in the distance; they seem to be merely strokes of paint on the canvas. Who will win this race? We don’t know. Everything can change just seconds before the end. What we can is make this regatta last a bit longer by hanging this painting on the wall!
