The tempo of the rain
The magic of rain
Some people hate soggy weather, but Leonid Afremov is in love with the subtle magic of the rain. Where others see just a dirty puddle blocking their way, he sees a portal to another dimension filled with bright colors and cheerful emotions. “The tempo of the rain” is one of the most vivid and dynamic paintings created by his skillful hand. While most Afremov paintings convey the sense of peace and serenity, this one is filled with motion. The artist captured the city after a vigorous downpour, with streams of water running down the broad prospect and draining from the roofs of the buildings. You can nearly see the splashes coming from under the shoes of the by-passers. With dozens of city lights mirrored in the wet asphalt and rain-washed windows, the entire street seems to be flowing like smeared face paint.
Here the distinctive painting manner of Leonid Afremov manifested to the fullest degree. While using fine, closely applied dashes to reproduce the dance of colorful reflections of the sidewalk, he painted the sky with chunky, casual strokes making the scene more spontaneous and emotional. Note that the building in the forefront is a pure flow of colors without any distinct outlines or architectural details. That adds to the impression of liquidity penetrating the entire painting. On the other side of the street, we see a hospitably illuminated storefront crowded with beetle-size silhouettes of people seeking a shelter from the riotous forces of nature. Together with glowing clusters of lanterns cozily lining the sidewalk, it conveys a positive emotional message and enhances the visual appeal of the artwork.
Some advice on using this painting in your room design
- We recommend hanging it in the living or dining room to add more color and life to your interior and surprise your guests with an exquisite piece of art.
- Avoid using it in your bedroom where its vibrant colors will be out of place.
- If you’re easily distracted, don’t put it in your office or personal study. Constantly catching you eye, it will prevent you from focusing on your work.
- The painting will fit neatly into a minimalistic modern-style interior with plain-colored furniture and bright décor accents as well as a classic wood-based soft-toned design. However, it will look odd in a very light-colored room.
