about this painting:
UP IN THE SKY
Desire to fly
People have always aspired to reach the stars and find out what secrets are hidden in the depth of the sky. Industrial progress has made this possible, and one of the first successful attempts was the hot air balloon invented by brothers Montgolfier. Not only has this construction allowed humanity to make short-term flies, but also to take strolls in the air which can be a perfect addition to a family excursion or a romantic date. Now there are a lot of modern flying machines that can take us to any place on earth, even into space, but looking at gorgeous varicolored balloons will always take our breath away and fill our hearts with excitement.
A trip to the stars
Hot air balloons deserve to be memorized in oil on canvas. Using impressive painting techniques, Leonid Afremov shows us a thrilling parade of these wonderful flying vehicles. The heroes of the picture are four bright balloons drifting into the open sky. They seem to be so real as if you actually saw them with your own eyes. The reserved cold palette used by the artist creates the effect of a dusky evening, but the background is strewn with bright specks of color resembling beautiful fireworks. This amazing piece of modern art doesn’t limit your imagination – you can come up with your own interpretation of the scene, decide who the passengers are and where they head. Is it a city holiday, a crowded exhibition of a romantic evening in the park where you can rent a balloon to spend a fabulous date with your beloved one? Did this flight take place a couple of weeks ago? Or is it just a long bygone memory? What can be better than a painting telling its own story and you being the one to decide what it will be?
Being one of the most prominent artists of nowadays, Leonid Afremov relies on some peculiar techniques and mediums that make his artworks outstanding and recognizable:
- Using a palette knife to apply paint in vivid, dynamic strokes of different size and shape, the artist produces amazing effects that can’t be achieved with a regular brush.
- By adding overlapping layers of paints, he adds volume and texture to his works giving them a distinct three-dimensional feel.
- Bold combinations of colors and abundant light effects fill his paintings with life and energy.
If you are in love with the sky and everything related to it, add this lovely picture to your interior design and watch this head-spinning flight over and over again each time you feel like dreaming!
