about this painting:
BY THE LIGHTHOUSE
A jigsaw puzzle
It’s curious how attractive lighthouses are. Millions of tourists visit them worldwide, there are plenty of paintings on canvas poetizing these human works, etc. What is so special about them?
This artwork, however, is not aimed at singing the praises of one more lighthouse, although it’s one of the main “characters” of this oil painting. We’d rather say it’s poetizing the sunset sky, the sea, the ship… and the lighthouse is just one of the jigsaw pieces in this seascape. Any of them are essential, but none is more important than the other.
Sky in flames
Leonid Afremov’s works are remarkable in many ways, but one of their most outstanding traits is the play of color. He chooses colors and shades so precisely that the whole picture seems absolutely harmonious. There is no noisiness that sometimes makes an impressionist oil painting obtrusive. There is no obscuritycapable of making the whole artwork blurry.
Take this painting, for example. This sunset sky is literally in flames as if the lighthouse had set it on fire like an enormous match. The scene is reflected in the sea surface, and it seems that the water has flared up, too. But the whole impression is very positive – you do not feel alarmed because of the fire. It’s warm but not scalding. What is the secret? We think it is a very careful mixture of colors that creates the right mood.
Where to put this work of art?
If you have chosen this picture among other paintings on canvas for sale, we are happy to provide you with some practical hints:
- Seascapes and lighthouse paintings look marvelous in a marine designed room. It may be the whole idea of the interior or just a couple of details, but the painting usually wants some supportive motives.
- Being a powerful artwork, this oil painting on canvas prefers to hang alone rather than with other pictures on the same wall. However, there is no rule without exceptions, and we are ready to admit we have rushed to conclusions!
We wish you to find this wonderful picture inspirational and enjoy every moment you spend contemplating it.
