about this painting:
SUNSET OVER THE LAKE
The end of the daylight
Sunsets are a spectacular and outstanding natural phenomenon. They look especially beautiful at the sea. The most unbelievably beautiful moment is when the sun, exhausted after its busy day, starts to go west and touches the blue water of the sea. Then we can see how colors around are changing, how the yellow giant is reflecting in the world of water and how it’s bathing in the clouds. Leonid Afremov definitely knows how to paint a sunset to make it look real!
In this artwork we see the sunset over a lake. There’s a lonely sailboat in the painting. On the boat we can see a figure of a person. He might be a fisherman or just a very romantic person who decided to spend his evening watching one of the most beautiful sunsets of his life. We are standing on the shore and looking at the fascinating view of the evening lake. The sand under our feet is being washed lazily by small waves. Or maybe we are sailing on the boat as well? We can feel the waves rocking the boat back and forth. It’s very relaxing. You can feel some special inner peace. The setting sun makes the lake shimmer as if it’s on fire.
To paint the beauty of the phenomenon Leonid Afremov used the following colors:
1. Sunny yellow;
2. Bright orange;
3. Hot red;
These colors perfectly blend in with the blue of the water where the artist has used some darker colors to point out that the night is close.
Let’s look at the incredibly picturesque sky in this artwork. The flames of sunset are painting some fancy patterns on the sky. They are changing and transforming one into another as the sun is setting. The multi-colored clouds are surrounding the sun but not obscuring it. The sky and the lake are divided by a chain of black mountains where in a couple of minutes the sun will hide from us. It’s will have its night rest in order to repeat its marvelous extravaganza the next morning which is called sunrise.
This painting will be an excellent artwork for home or office. You can hang it in your living room, bedroom or study. It will bring a special chic to your strict office interior. Make your friends or family happy to give this painting as a present for their birthday or some other occasion.
