about this painting:


Morning charm

Rainy weather has a special effect on our mood making us forget about everything but the melodious hammering of droplets and the delightful scent of wet earth. You dissolve in this dance of water bubbles and wind gusts lulled by the music of nature. And when the storm is finally over, the world rests so quiet and fresh that even the slightest sounds send a long ringing echo for many miles around. It is early morning and the sky on the horizon is already touched by the gentle shades of blue and pink, but the lanterns are still on forming a warm chain of light along your way. The rhythmic racket of your footsteps and the beat of last rain drops against your umbrella makes you feel cozy and at ease. Looking at this picture, you can nearly smell this faint odor of moisture in the air and imagine yourself walking down this rain-soaked alley enjoying the beginning of another beautiful day.

Painting tricks

·         The artist uses exuberant colors to brighten up a dull rainy view and strike the viewer’s eye.

·         Visible dabs of orange and streaks of white on the wet path make the scene very luminous and warm.

·         The orange glow of lanterns is set off by the delicate blueness of the sky creating a strong visual contrast.

·         The occasional use of black adds saturation to certain parts of the canvas creating a subtle play of light and shadow.

·         Expressive strokes of the palette knife give the painting a completed textural look.

Revive your home

Most people use affordable acrylic pictures and prints in their interior design. But having an authentic oil painting on your wall is much better than decorating your place with cheap art prints. Shiny colors, amazing texture and that special feeling of the artist’s presence attach a new, deeper meaning to the depicted scene. Oil art is a melody of unsaid words and vague emotions that spring to life before our eyes. If you are hungry for glowing colors and beaming light, this lovely cityscape by Leonid Afremov is just what you need. Fill your home with warmth and comfort by hanging it in your living room!

I gave Two Sisters to my wife for her birthday. It perfectly captures the loves of her life - two granddaughters - and their shared immersion in all things fanciful, full of beauty and wonder. When she showed it to them they gasped and cried, "That's us!" Thanks so much!

I've just recently purchased my second original painting. I am now the proud owner of Melody of the Night and Paris of my Dreams. I absolutely love them both. Just this morning, I was standing in my kitchen and was able to look out and see them both. It brought a huge smile to my face to think that I actually own two paintings from a man that has inspired me for years. Thank you so very much!
