about this painting:
WASHED BY THE RAIN
Autumn rain in the city
In the summertime, all whims of nature are taken as something very special, fabulous and pleasant. A cloud-burst in the middle of a hot summer day can dispel the crowd away from the city streets, make them open their umbrellas in a hurry, look for a dry shelter, laugh at wet clothing and funny hair style. Such weather surprises threw us out of habitual everyday routine, change the rhythm of city life and people in it, bring relief to those who suffer from heat.
Strangers under umbrellas
The world loses its gravity, becomes more childish and romantic. Now it splashes its way barefoot across road puddles turning into a girl crossing the street. She is one of the main heroes of this rainy picture by Leonid Afremov. The girl runs somewhere covering herself with an umbrella to save her face paint and smiling happily. Her image created in warm and soft shades is full of joy and lightheartedness. Her face features are depicted so uncommonly clearly that you may distinguish a light smile and pursy eyes. The tone of her skin is very natural, soft and light. To create such a wonderful artistic image starting with the color of her dress and ending with face paint, Photoshop won’t come into play. Canvas, oil paints, palette knives and a lot of pure emotions – all this makes the picture by Leonid Afremov so unique and realistic.
Another remarkable part of the happy rainy day image is a stranger wearing a sunny bright shirt of yellow color. The man is also in a hurry trying to escape the unexpected heavy downpour. On either side of the bypassers, viewers may observe a pair of cars illuminating their way through the rain-washed city. The car lights are of the same warm colors as the two strangers. These bright flashes of color look wonderful on the background of blue, grey and green tones of the city, trees and rain.
Rainy romanticism in your home
With its vivid and cheerful ambience, this picture by Leonid Afremov will definitely make a nice decoration for your living space. You may hang it:
- in your bedroom to create a romantic and tender atmosphere;
- in your living room to fill the place with joy and vivid emotions;
- in your study to create a calm corner for mental rest.
Art should be an irreplaceable part of your everyday life since it adds bright colors to the caravan of your ordinary days. The same effect can be observed in this beauitful painting by Leonid Afremov. The artist showed us that rain isn’t always associated with grey sky, muddy roads and monotonous mood. There is always a place left for sunny happiness and joy even among raindrops and gloomy clouds.
