Festive atmosphere every day
Among other large canvas oil paintings represented in this shop, “Siesta” is very special. Sure, we cannot say that others are not – it would be absolutely unfair to these wonderful pictures! What we want to say is that this painting is unique in many ways: its theme, overtones, color-scheme, etc. The only thing that remains constant is a great talent of the artist which is brought to light again from a new perspective in this work of art.
Large canvas for big ideas
When an artist has a lot to say, even quite a large canvas is not enough to convey everything. As some would say, we cannot embrace the unembraceable. Or can we? At least, it is always worth trying, and this is what Leonid Afremov does: he seeks, he finds, he paints it, no matter how ambitious the plan may seem. Just a few features of this painting that prove our point:
1. The grandeur of nature, of the sea and the skies are incarnated in a very majestic way. The artist’s intention to convey it has definitely succeeded, as you can’t resist the magic of this painting.
2. The splendor of man-made creations has been captured and expressed very gently but surely. These outlines of a town with its nice buildings and quayside, these neat white boats are very simple, but their charm is undeniable.
3. The languishing atmosphere of siesta brings peace and harmony. This painting will never make you hurry and bustle about – what for, after all? Just savor the moment of rest.
How to put such a large picture?
Sometimes we hesitate to buy big-sized paintings, as we doubt there will be enough room for them. Here are some hints that can put off these doubts:
· Do not hang it too high. It may seem that its size requires a lot of additional space, but it is not so. Remember: the center of the picture should stay at the eye level.
· If you have other paintings or prints in the room, try to arrange them according to their color and theme suitability. You can create a grouping, but stay with the odd number of items.
· Think of some room for people to step back so that their eye could take in the whole painting.
This work of art by Leonid Afremov will be a perfect option for anyone who is looking for a great painting – both in the sense of size and quality.
