about this painting:
Mystery of water
There are three things we can look at infinitely: burning fire, running water and working person. That makes the sight of Leonid Afremov painting his new picture a perfect scene to admire. And even when the painting is finished and there is nobody moving the palette knife over the canvas to add bright strokes here and there, it is still full of fluency, vibrancy and painstaking labor put into it. Enjoy the bright colors of the night river weaving its way along the glowing pier in this captivating cityscape.
The best quality of Leonid Afremov as an artist is his ability to transform a common view into miraculous scenery striking the eye with a great amount of color and light. The still surface of the river shimmers enigmatically in the dark reflecting city illuminations in long luminous stripes. Warmed by the cozy glow of the lanterns, the houses on the bank rapidly change their palette from blue to orange, from yellow to green and back until they shrink into one shiny dot on the horizon. Offsetting the abundance of light on the canvas, the artist uses saturated shades of black, blue and violet to add depth and mystery to his artwork. Depicted in quick diagonal strokes of exuberant shades, the night sky seems to be raining down on the city painting it bright and festive. The rapture that fills you while contemplating this breathtaking scenery instantly takes your mind off everyday troubles and leaves you tete-a-tete with the beauty of the night.
Modern canvas art requires a special approach to painting. As visual arts grow more and more sophisticated along with viewer demands, artists search for new ways to express their vision of the world. After years of experimenting, Leonid Afremov has come up with a unique painting manner based on the use of palette knife instead of brushes:
- Oils are laid in thick overlapping strokes of different color to create contrast and style.
- The knife is pressed into paint in different ways producing a variety of visual effects.
- While the paint is still wet, the artist scrapes into it with the knife to form distinct layers of texture.
All this allows Afremov to create truly amazing paintings that are impossible to pass by. Modern canvas art, prints and miniatures are becoming increasingly popular among people of different cultural priorities and lifestyles.
