about this painting:
SAILING WITH THE MOON
The charm of the night
The moon has always been a mystery to us. Always there in the sky at night, it remains elusive and enigmatic. Shading its dim shimmer upon the earth, it gives us a source of light in the darkness, but rather than illuminating our way it creates quirky shadows distorting the shape of things and making us wonder whether what we see is real or just an illusion. At all times artists and poets have been mesmerized by the mystical transformation of the world in the unsteady moonlight. Leonid Afremov is no exception. As an Impressionist, he is fascinated by the play of light and shade and tries to convey it in his works using a wide palette of colors and an extraordinary technique. Enjoy this marvelous seascape depicting the beauty of the night and poetizing the mysterious charm of the full moon!
Alone at sea
The world is quiet and still. Tired of rolling its waves towards hundreds of shores, the sea rests barely swaying in the soft light of the moon. The water twinkles enigmatically revealing the subtlest of shades that can be seen only at night. Its vast expanse is silent and steady and only the slight rustle, at the edge of your ear, indicates its movement. There is nothing breaking this perfect tranquility except for one boat gliding across the sea surface. Its sail is fluttering in the tender breeze, its sides are glittering as it makes its way to the horizon. Someone decided to stay awake and admire the panorama of the night sea. What draws him into the shimmering distance? The answer is clear: the pale globe of the moon flying silently, like a ghost, through the black sky. It calls the boat to follow it promising to show its hidden side. Yet you can never catch it and keep hunting the vague glade until the dawn erases it from your vision…
