about this painting:
Night of inspiration
It is hardly possible to describe in simple words all the beauty and fascination of southern nights. Always lit with sun- or moonlight, illuminated by stars, full of freedom and romance, lulled by warm sea winds, they inspire and make us fall in love. One of such nights is perfectly painted by Leonid Afremov heavily-armed by oil paints, canvas and a palette knife.
What a pleasure to walk along a deserted city street just washed by warm summer rain! Southern night transforms ordinary colors of the day into a new, unearthly and mesmerizing palette. Wet pavement turns into a huge canvas where lights and shadows, colors and their reflections, lines and shapes are blended together into one spectacular scenery.
It’s late night, and there is no one to be seen in the street. The only one who is still awake is a stream of lantern light. It plays with nighty colors, illuminates twists and turns of the lonely streets and enjoys total silence of the night. It has already got home all loving couples sauntering through the city. These silent observer knows millions of different stories unfolding before its glowing eyes each southern night. And one of these stories takes its place on the beautiful canvas of Leonid Afremov. In its turn, the painting will definitely take a special place on the wall of your bedroom!
