Colors and Umbrellas – The Paintings of Leonid Afremov

Leonid Afremov is a Russian–Israeli modern impressionistic artist who works mainly with a palette knife and oils. His style is unique and unmistakable. Many of his paintings feature fancy umbrellas. These are some of my favorites.

  1. Nice. Very romantic. I wish you posted them in bigger format so we could take a better look. Art like this needs a closeup.

    I think I like the sixth painting most. Mostly cause of the ground rain effect.

    You liked my leopard skirt post even though you don’t like leopard print:)… You’re nice.

  2. i really like #7…and it occurs to me now that it may be due to the lack of humans in the picture (subconsciously, of course)

    it’s a perpetually frustrating fact about humans that they only fall into two categories, alone or not alone. these paintings mirror that reality.

    i also notice that the daytime paintings are lovely but the surroundings feel bleak, whereas the ones of nighttime are lush and more colorful than any day.

    thank you for sharing this artist…which is your favorite umbrella? mine is painting #3 on the left. i like its confidence.

  3. Wooow!! I love them all they are amaizing, and I love your post as well, thanks a lot for shareing 😀
    Reminds me a lot of Manet, but most of all Monet, I love impresionism
    Great Work!

    Have a great day!

  4. They are all very gorgeous! I’ve used one of them on a post of mine before, but I didn’t know whose it was. Thanks for the information.
