about this painting:
Who can say they are not in love with the sea? There is hardly anyone who, after spending at least one day at the beach or aboard a small yacht, would not long for this beauty again. Gentle wind, light clouds, white-crested waves breaking against the shore with a quiet rustle – everything here has its rhythm and melody. But you never know what to expect from the sea. It can be agitating and unruly, even threatening in its stormy fury, or calm and gentle, soothing soul wounds and washing away all your miseries. Those who live at the sea state that it has its own mood and temper that cannot be predicted or understood.
A pleasant voyage
Leonid Afremov captured a calm sunny day at the sea on a large canvas. He managed to share his impression of the scene with the viewers allowing us to dissolve in the salty fresh air and endless white-blue colors. There is no hint of the oncoming storm, yachts are moored at the marina, so you can relish their charming look and dream about sailing aboard one of them. What can be better than flying into the blueness of the open sea dotted with stripes of white foam here and there? The painting evokes all these thoughts and emotions, inviting you to set your sail and cleave your path into the world of adventures and freedom.
Play of colors
A painting is a complex structure all elements of which interact in a certain way to achieve a certain effect. The air of relaxation filling this cloudless scenery is achieved through the use of the following techniques:
· The artist is famous for his brush-free painting – he used a palette knife as a main tool. Laying thick strokes of paint next to each other in a patchwork-like manner, he created an incredibly vivid textural surface that makes you believe there is a live picture in front of you. No tricks, no illusion – just you and the sea.
· The painting contains no distinct images, everything is a little blurred, outlines and colors flow into each other as if you were looking through a thin mist. That adds to the atmosphere of serenity and leisure hanging over the harbor.
· The color choice is not accidental either. The dominating white color is very symbolic: Leonid Afremov wants you to free your mind from all the problems and duties, leave them ashore and set out on a voyage of no boundaries and limitations. Imagine that your life is a large blank canvas and you are the one to paint it.
