about this painting:
Spain – Sitges
In his Spanish artwork depicting the spa city of Sitges, the artist used a lot of bright colors and all these colors perfectly convey the spa atmosphere. Here, the artist’s favorite technique of depicting the sky in the form of multi-colored confetti is very appropriate – it certainly contributes to the creation of the holiday atmosphere – it seems that hundreds of fireworks were launched into the sky. In the foreground of the picture we see a monumental cathedral that combines European and Moorish styles – Spain has been inhabited by the Moors for a very long time and traces of their culture can be seen everywhere. They are expressed primarily in architecture. The main object of the artist’s painting depicting Spain is highlighted with the help of yellow paint – therefore, of course, it stands out against the background of blue and purple colors of the night. Another element of the Spanish painting is the reflection of the cathedral in the water – in the serene sea surface we find all the same yellow paint, but here orange and brown colors are admixed. The painting contains 3 elements at once:
- Water – in the form of a bay with perfectly clear water
- Urban – in the form of a fortified city located on a spur of a mountain by the sea
- Mountain – in the form of mountain silhouettes in the background.
By the way, in the painting you can still find objects such as the moon, which is a little blurred among the sky confetti and a string of cars stretched along the walls of the castle. This suggests that the painting was created nowadays.
Sitges is one of the oldest settlements in Spain. In the fourth century a. d., the territory of the city was settled by Iberian tribes. In the twelfth century, the city was governed by the Sitges dynasty. In their honor, the settlement got its name, which has remained to the present. The city is located in one of the Spanish bays – the Costa del Garraf, full of tourists where throughout the year. Despite its small size, this settlement has always attracted foreign travelers. Numerous carnivals, various colorful festivals and fun festivities attract residents of other countries who are looking for new experiences and emotions.
Enjoy the Spanish atmosphere of Leonid Afremov, who will send you on an imaginary trip to the spa town of Sitges.
