A story of one sunset
The painting «Sunset by the Lake» tells us a lovely story about one beautiful summer evening.
- A group of people (good friends or family members) admire a picturesque sunset from the coziness of their boat swaying gently in the middle of a peaceful lake. Hanging low over the horizon, the flame-colored sun blends with the evening sky painting everything in soft golden tones. Its heavy glow speads all over the sky like honey creating a wide warm band over the lake.
- The gleam of the sunset are also reflected in the mirror of the lake.This refined play of light makes the water ignite with fantastic colors. We can observe strokes of light and dark blue, violet, reddish, orange, brown, dark grey and silver white forming a scintillating surface that seems to move and alter right before our eyes.
- A distant shape of an unknown town or city skylines in the background, blurred and unclear, as if woven from the clouds by your own imagination. This detail emphasizes the atmosphere of solitude and calm taking you away from all the vanities of the world.
- People in the picture are depicted as plain dark silhouettes with no details to indicate their age, gender or appearance. That means they are just silent viewers, secondary actors in this magnificent concert of nature. The major part in this fabulous play clearly belongs to the magical sunset unfolding in the sky.
Symbols and meanings
Aside from emphasizing the immaculate style of your interior, this painting by Leonid Afremov will also enhance the aura of your home or office with its positive symbolism:
