about this painting:
SHADOWS ON SNOW
Two queens on one throne
The snow has covered the ground in November. There was still foliage on the trees, so nobody expected the harbinger of winter to appear so early. Now the two seasons have to live in peace, otherwise they’ll cause damage to people. That’s why it’s not the battle depicted in the landscape painting here – it’s the friendship of autumn and winter. Together they can surprise us with interesting color combinations which decorate the nature. Just like Leonid Afremov has painted on this canvas! Examine it closely and don’t resist yourself the desire to buy it!
Each season has his own palette
Though the snow is associated with cold, the viewer gets quite an opposite impression about the artwork. There’s a source of light in it, which adds a certain feeling of warmth to the picture. The magical streetlamp makes the snow shimmer with all colors of rainbow. Pay a special attention to landscape painting techniques used by Afremov:
- A palette knife permits the artist to apply different kinds of dabs. He paints trunks of the trees with long thin lines, whereas he chooses smooth but thick strokes for the snowy surface.
- Leonid picks rich colors for the canvas. The dark blue twilight wraps the tall trees in the distance. In some places it acquires an amazing shade of purple. The foreground is presented mostly by vivid yellow: it’s the color of the leaves, it’s on the ground and in the scattered light.
- We can even visually divide the image into two halves. To the left is winter, to the right is fall. There isn’t any foliage on the tall trees. But smaller ones are still decorated with orange, reddish and golden leaves.
Two seasons live in harmony in this piece of art by Leonid Afremov. It might seem impossible but it’s true. The evening park looks magnificent at this very moment, because its beauty has doubled.
