La technique est comparable à celle du tableau intitulé "Le Recrutement". Il s'agit également d'un paysage urbain ,de nuit , sous la pluie. Le rendu du reflet de la lumière sur le sol de la place est excellent. Les arbres et les lampadaires donnent une idée de la profondeur; et la perspective est bien rendue. Le personnage donne un coté humain au tableau , et cette femme au parapluie rappelle la météo et rend également une idée de l 'échelle. Les lignes horizontales sont harmonieuses , et la verticale est donnée par les arbres et les lampadaires. Les couleurs sont joyeuses et éclatantes. Mais je préfère le tableau "Le recrutement", car il y a plus de détails et surtout de vie,d'animation ;alors que cette place est quasiment déserte. Prométhée(ex Loki)

Hi, I think your art is being used without your knowledge by (and according to the review it's a crap copy)…

They don't name the artist, red flag, and the quality says picture of a picture.

I also found one of your pieces here, hope this is your choice (…).

I really love your work, been looking at it online for years (because I can't afford to purchase it lol) You're truly gifted and this piece is stunningly beautiful. The combination of colors (when combined with the appearance of actual luminescence from the street lamps) makes the colors really come alive.

Boom colors!!!
This painting is pure art. It’s rarely to see someone using thick layer of paint scraper. Dominated by reddish-yellow and cardinal red, which turned into an orange and litlle ocher, this is like looking symphony orchestra that calms matt blue to cold blue.
If it is done for a long time, works very fresh like in two breath in the manner of impressionists, such that observer is precisely in this park right now.

From these images can be read the old masters and contemporary interpretation flatbed figurizam where Leonid Afremov builds a picture of border poentilizam, but it does not restrict.
With lights and trees to the left and right, which gradually narrow, he did nice linear perspective which leads us to a woman in the middle, with an umbrella. This is only first visible sign that is a rainy day.
Second one is reflections on the floor most of the trees and lights, that gives impression that the rain had viciously attacked and still fall. With reflection that everything looks much higher and monumental, and especially with the small woman in the middle, which is barely noticeable next to the color of wealth and waves of rain on the floor.

Image their cheerfulness gives the impression of summer evenings in the park, not rain.
If Leonidov in this way have experiencing rain, with such a wealth of color, I wonder how he sees good weather?

Certainly this is a picture that refreshes, and gives a beautiful view of nature. After spending time with this picture, it’s certainly admirable and generosity experience.

This is not just a girl taking a walk in the rain in Paris in the summer, at 11:00. This is not just a kaleidoscope with a girl stuck in the middle. The lampposts have beautiful firefly-lit balls of light, the trees blend with the lampposts, the iron blends with the trees to make a forest of iron and wood and light. The rainbow leaves create passion, fashion and wonder, and to me, portray another world, another time, another state of existence. I see reflected on the marble of this rainbow ironwood forest's floor the same passion, wonder and inexplicable joy. And the girl with the umbrella creates the perfect resting place after your mind has just been taken on a fantastic journey through the rainbow. I hear happy songs and sad music, rain, the silence after the rain, and I see happy alone-ness. This painting tells wonderful stories, so thank you for the wonderful work.

Truly amazing. The way you managed to depict both loneliness and togetherness in one painting is phenomenal. The colors make me feel connected with the rest of the world, while still being completely alone. Not only do I feel more connected with nature, but all humans as a whole. The way you made the branches of the trees separate the colors is quite stunning if I do say so myself. The sky has always been known as a beautiful canvas of color, but never during the night, this is what truly makes this painting unique. Job well done, I'll definitely be trying to get a hold of this piece!
