about this painting:


Wuthering heights

Even if you are afraid of heights, there is one important advantage of living on the top floor – you can get a beautiful bird’s-eye view of the entire city. Spread below like a giant map, it looks unusual and fascinating. This colorful ocean of roofs with specks of green foliage here and there seems to flow over the horizon and carries you away on its shiny tiled waves. And the sky is so spacious and so close that you feel like standing on the very top of the world. Using bright oil paint and a palette knife, Leonid Afremov created a lovely panorama of sun-lit houses in the old part of a picturesque European city.

Peculiar traits:

  • Depicted in a simplified decorative manner, the houses look unrealistic as if made of cardboard.
  • The painting is rather reserved both in terms of the palette and stroke arrangement.
  • The artist uses just five basic colors: red, yellow, brown, green and blue.
  • Resonating with each other, these colors create a very cozy and eye-friendly pattern that radiates peace and harmony.
  • There is a sense of movement in the sky conveyed through the direction of strokes.
  • There is an interesting contrast between the dark stormy clouds and the calm sunlight surrounding the houses.
  • The house in the lower right corner is painted in the same shades as the sky.

The magic of oils

One of the greatest pleasures of every art lover is to unroll the newly arrived canvas, admire its palette and texture for the first time and breathe in a delightful smell of fresh oil paint. Photoshop and printed art can’t give you the same emotions. Hand-painted art is alive, it talks to you from the wall and involves you into the scene as your eyes travel around the canvas eagerly absorbing its bright colors and edgy strokes. That’s why it is always best to decorate your home with authentic paintings created by a human hand rather than a computer program.

You must understand my delight at being able to find and buy a copy of Alley by the Lake after years of searching. I cannot believe that just a year ago, I was in a Walmart in Iraq after being informed that they had an unlimited supply of these paintings. I ad also heard that Leonid Afremov himself was a slave in one of the Walmart's sweatshops. This completely outraged me, but I found it to be nothing but a simple hoax! After escaping the Taliban successfully, I came back home to find this website and was able to order it using the magic of technicalology! Thanks my lucky stars for gugle and beeng!

Dear Mr. Afremov, I have just received "Alley by the lake"... and i felt in love by first sight! The painting is absolutely amazing! Thank you for bringing so much joy and happiness with your work. You are an outstanding author and i feel proud, being an owner of a part of your art. Wish you a healthy and inspiring 2014!

I love the mixed media version of Stroll of Infinity I purchased. The black & white portions of the painting are a perfect fit for the rainy scene. I look forward to purchasing more from your series of mixed media editions. Beauty of the Park, Kiss Under Umbrella, and Rainy Wedding are my other favorites! Keep up the wonderful work!
