about this painting:
Sunset by the Lighthouse
Looking at lighthouse sunset by Leonid Afremov you might wonder why artists love so much portraying lighthouses? What is so special about this building? Let's try to figure out. A lighthouse is a tower that stands on the seashore. Its main purpose is ship navigation. It would seem that the lighthouse was literally created in order to be somewhere alone being the tallest building so that it can be seen from afar. This building has a bright contrasting color, visually distinguishing it from the surrounding area. The lighthouses are equipped with a strong light source and, as a rule, with optical means to amplify the light signal, so that they can be clearly seen at night. The lighthouse can also give sound signals to ships and (or) transmit a radio signal in order to fulfill its function in conditions of insufficient visibility (it can temporary, for example, fog, or constant – for example, caused by terrain conditions). Therefore, the lighthouse is considered to be a symbol of hope. Due to the use of modern navigation technologies, the role of lighthouses as a means of navigation has somewhat decreased, and currently the number of operating lighthouses around the world does not exceed one and a half thousand. But imagine medieval navigation when the compass was the main navigation tool for sailors. Of course, in conditions of that time, lighthouses played a huge role.
Fire in the sky
The sky by Leonid Afremov’s brush is a special topic for conversation because the artist always chooses the most suitable colors for the image of this element. They are always so soft that it is difficult to take eyes off them. This painting by Leonid Afremov certainly shows us the sunset sky in the most beautiful colors. They are in amazing harmony with each other and of course we feel this harmony through the canvas. And this makes us calm and appeased. We feel peacefulness and relaxation. Another important feature of Leonid Afremov’s technique is the reflection of the sky in the sea. Thus, we get two almost identical sets of colors, although of course the sea surface always looks darker. There are not so many warm colors in it as in the sky. This element is less subject to the human and accordingly for its depiction Leonid Afremov use not so soft paints. But in general, of course, the mood of the painting can be described as a pleasant calm and relaxed. And these emotions are achieved thanks to a very accurate combination of colors.
Another element of your interior
Of course, when you look at a painting, you think where to hang it. Here are some tips for this painting: 1. Try to make this painting consistent with the theme of your room. Ideally, it should be marine. What does it mean? In the room should be present household items of sailors. For example, you can hang a steering wheel on the wall. Think also about finer details. Make a shell composition on a shelf.
- We think that this painting should occupy a central place on the wall. Of course, you can make a collage, but it seems to us that it would be better if this painting is the only one on the wall. Remember what we said about the lighthouse – this is a structure that has always been built away from other buildings, which is why it is a great idea to refuse compositional combinations for this painting.
In any case, it seems to us that nothing will stop you from enjoying the amazing view that is shown in the canvas.
