about this painting:


A city to remember

In his line of work, Leonid Afremov has travelled to many foreign cities, from popular tourist hubs to small villages lost in the woods. Searching for new impressions and inspiring scenes worth of capturing on the canvas, he visited Amsterdam, one of the most spectacular European capitals where magnificent architecture of past centuries coexists in harmony with modern neon-lit buildings. The city struck him with its beauty and power. Bewitched by the vivid and free atmosphere surrounding him, Afremov decided to create a series of paintings depicting Amsterdam in its full splendor.

Simple and marvelous

As most other Afremov works, this one is full of color and glow. The shiny water surface reflecting and multiplying every little source of light, colorful speckles in the night sky, gracious tree branches threading the painting here and there – all that is already familiar and dear to us. The loveliest thing about this picture, though, is the buildings. Painted in red, yellow and blue colors, with their cute chunky windows gazing curiously into the night and their roofs flattened by the darkness, they rather resemble doll houses than real constructions. But this clumsy charm adds to the unique appeal of the painting. We can imagine ourselves walking down the pier, admiring the fine architecture and watching the boat disappear on the horizon leaving a colorful ripple on the water surface. It doesn’t look like those elaborate, poetic landscapes we usually see on framed pictures decorating our friends’ walls. Instead, Afremov is trying to reach out to us just by keeping it simple. And it really works!

Must-do Amsterdam sights

This painting offers just a short glimpse of Amsterdam, but there are so many places worth of seeing in this wonderful city! If you ever happen to be there, find some time to visit:

  • The Oude Kerk church
  • The Dam square
  • The Magere Brug
  • The Rembrandtplein district
  • The Vonderpark
  • The Albert Cuyp market

This vibrant picture will make a beautiful sample of framed wall art for your home or office. Put a piece of Amsterdam in your room and fill it with color and positive emotions!

I just received my "Dancing in the Rain" painting and I am completely in love with it! Thank you so much for this amazing piece, Mr. Afremov! This is my second piece by you and I am already picking out my third! :) You are truly a rare talent!

Estimado Leonid, mi inglés es muy precario, por lo cual voy a expresarme en español. Descubrí sus pinturas por un reto de arte en facebook, dónde buscando encontré a Rain Princess. Es mi pintura favorita en todo el mundo y gracias a usted la tengo en mi living. Es realmente muy bella, los colores, el mensaje que transmite. Realmente estoy completamente enamorada de su obra y no puedo parar de observarla. Mis contactos se están contagiando también. Compré Ballet Magic para mi madre, quién la espera con ansias. Y también estoy esperando dos obras más suyas para mi propia colección: Melody of the night y Dance under the rain. Gracias por tanta belleza! Siento mucha admiración por su arte.

I was anxious waiting for the arrival of this art all the way from Mexico to Australia. Today, it arrived by Fedex ahead of delivery date! On opening it, I was truly amazed at just how much more beautiful this piece of artwork is compared to what you see on the website. Thank you Leonid. Your work is beautiful. I can assure you, this will be the first of what I hope is many of your beautiful art I will proudly display in our home.
