about this painting:
The jewel of the sea
Sicily, the heart of the Mediterranean… Its sunny shores seem to be a dazzling dream, too good to wake up. Once you step on its hospitable ground, breathe in its fragrant air, a mixture of sea salt, flowers and wines, and lay you eyes on its beautiful sceneries, you know that you are in love with this island. The same must have happened to Leonid Afremov. This gentle and inspiring seascape captured at the crack of dawn is a confession of his feelings in oil.
Pictures of nature are a rather challenging genre of painting. It has to be more than just a copy of a nice view and Leonid Afremov understands that. Experimenting with color and light, he gives his sceneries a warm, cheerful and cozy mood that totally transforms the canvas. It is a quiet and windless hour. Lulled by its own rhythm, the sea lies still as glass reflecting the entire palette of the newborn sky. In the west, the serene flow of blue is split by heavy storm clouds, but their inky imminence drowns in the soft gold of the rising sun. The image opens up like a bud. The play of sparkles in the water prism, a cuddly house cloaked in lilac slumber, a sun-loaded boat carrying home the crisp colors of morning… A moment of rare harmony. A precious memory to share.
