about this painting:


Is there time when the city sleeps?

Everything counts when you use some elements of design for small rooms. Much depends upon the color scheme of the room that can add space if used properly. You can also benefit from decorations and elements of design that can either expand the place or, on the contrary, make it smaller.  When you look for large oil paintings, you can prefer black and white artworks. This is unique combination. When black or white used separately they have a range of disadvantages that do away when mix of these colors are employed. Black is beneficially refreshed by white that brings lightness and clarity. White is not so dull when it is combined with black. Other benefits of this combo:

·                    Black and white combination can enlarge visually the room so you can fool your eyes and create appropriate design applying the right combos of color.

·                    Black increases the decorating statement.

·                    Monochrome palette creates the stunning view.

·                    Black and white art creates the classic look.

Flashes of light

As for the large oil painting “When the city sleeps”, we can also see how flashes of light refresh the dark painting. The canvas describes the sleeping city, which is lit with lanterns standing along the road. We see beautiful architecture, a wide street and people with umbrellas.  It looks like a central district of the city. The painting created in impressionism style reflects the mood of the painter. The style of Leonid Afremov is recognizable, and multicolored strokes of palette knife create diversity. It is even hard to imagine that there is some time when the city sleeps. At least, this is not noticed on the painting. There are too many people on the scene who seem to be busy with something and just hurry somewhere.

Dynamism of the sleeping city

Multicolored paintings impress the viewers as they spectacular. Impressionist artists always resort to similar method of expression but Afremov does that differently. His painting techniques are unique. Additionally, the room can’t be dull with such painting on the wall. The strokes of oil create the impression of dynamism that also does not comply with sleepiness and peace. It would rather suit any person who needs some drive or a boost for more activity.
