about this painting:
The quiet beauty of winter
We usually seek inspiration in poetic seasons like spring and autumn, but winter can be just as picturesque if you look at it with the eyes of Leonid Afremov. One of the most popular contemporary artists of nowadays, he has invented his own painting technique that makes his works unmistakably unique and irresistibly charming. This one is of a more reserved and calmer variety, yet it strikes the eye with a multitude of colors burning in the sunset sky and reflecting in the ice-bound river. Conveying the silent beauty of the winter forest with neatly arranged strokes and carefully selected shades, Afremov leaves us deeply touched by this marvelous scene.
The magic of the season
Winter is a mysterious time of the year that takes a totally different artistic approach than other seasons. Instead of covering the canvas with a patchwork of motley speckles, the artist uses soft taps of white to depict snow and saturated black paint for bare tree skeletons in the foreground. Rising solemnly against the glowing sky painted in red and orange with long streaks of blue and violet on the right, they accentuate the landscape and make the entire scene more emotional and profound. The bright sky colors are dancing on the icy surface of the river creating a mesmerizing play of light, with the pale blob of the sun repeatedly mirrored along its entire length. Beautiful and magical!
Using the painting in your home design
- This fine piece of contemporary art will complement both modern-style and classic interiors.
- Because of a relatively dark color palette, it should be used in a well-lit room.
- Put it on a plain-colored wall and avoid using too much décor around it, otherwise it will feel out of place.
- You don’t necessarily have to get it framed.
Due to its universal theme and moderate color use, this painting will look great both in a busy living room and in a quiet bedroom. You can also hang it in your personal study or office for relaxation during the stressful work day.
