about this painting:
THE SUNSET SAILER
VOYAGE OF YOUR LIFE
Despite the fact that sea voyages are now available for almost everyone, their popularity has increased greatly over the years. Nowadays, ships and boats are no more the quickest and easiest way to travel the world, so the majority of people prefers planes to do that. Also, this way to travel has many other disadvantages like seasickness and storms that can still be quite dangerous.
Anyway, little voyages on personal yachts and sail boat remain popular among rich people. For them, it is a chance to show off their success and to spend a couple of days in the sea with their family and friends enjoying the sea and good quality food.
This luxurious type of vacations has something romantic about it, and it has inspired many artists to create talented Pier One boats paintings (Pier One is one of the best-selling sail boats companies in the world).
YACHT ON THE SUNSET
What can be more beautiful and inspiring than strolling down the quay and watching the sunset? We all have such memories from our summer vacation, and a contemporary artist Leonid Afremov is no exception. The only difference is that he managed to turn the memories dear to his heart into a painting. Let us look at this painting in more detail:
- The strokes. Look at how wonderfully light and expressive the strokes are. They seem to radiate from a giant glowing white ball of the sun. As you can notice, they gradually shade into the dark starry sky. The air seems to be vibrating, which helps the artist to recreate the atmosphere of a hot summer evening.
- Incredible white. The veils of the boat seem to be even too bright. Their unnaturally white color can appear unnecessary. And here you are wrong! Since Afremov is a postimpressionist, emotions for him are more important that reality. So, by painting this white veil he wanted to create a dreamy fairytale-like mood on canvas.
- Color palette. The choice of colors for this canvas is just perfect. Afremov uses juicy clear colors and plays on contrasts, for example, by using navy blue and sandy yellow, brown and light bleu etc. This color combinations are extremely esthetically pleasing.
- The fact that this artwork is actually a triptych leaves a lot of possibilities for the mind of a talented decorator. Three paintings of the same scene look much more expressive than one canvas. Moreover, you you should want some changes in your life, you can split it and hang on different walls – or, even, in different rooms!
