THE SONG OF THE CITY
Painting the rain
Leonid Afremov is known as a great rain painter. His vivid and luminous cityscapes strike the eye with a rich palette of shades that merge into one colorful mixture. Using a palette knife to fill the canvas with strokes of different size and shape, he creates imaginative scenes capturing all the beauty of rain-soaked city streets. When you look at his paintings, so full of color and light, you can fill positive emotions wash all over you and take your troubles away for a brief moment of delighted contemplation. And this picture is no different!
Surreal night street
At night, the city sparkles with all colors of the spectrum. Lantern bulbs, house windows, neon illumination and traffic lights sound together like an intricate symphony you can’t help admiring. Trying to convey the beauty of the moment, Leonid Afremov speckled the canvas with motley dabs of paint representing buildings, glass cases, sign boards and black silhouettes of people crowding at the storefront. Complemented by bright reflections on the wet asphalt surface and exuberant sky colors, the scene looks very vibrant and saturated. We can’t see any clear outlines, the only thing that actually resembles itself on the picture is the lamp post on the left. Everything is smeared by the rain and the entire street has a phantasmagoric look as if being part of a half-forgotten dream.
Room design tips
As this painting is very vibrant and luminous, it must be placed on a plain-colored wall of a lighter shade with minimal décor surrounding it.
- Fits best into modern-style interiors with bright color accents, but also goes well with classic design elements.
- Will make a great artwork for office as well.
- Can be used both as frameless and framed art depending on your design preferences.
- As a framed artwork, requires a dark wood frame.
If you are a fan of Impressionist art, this beautiful and inspiring painting will make a fine addition to your home gallery. Enjoy the subtle music of the rain as city lights and their reflections strike marvelous color chords on the painted canvas!
