I love it! The blend of colours are simply exquisite! I would have probably used a 'warmer' shade of blue or placed a bit more on the outskirts of the canvas. Even though there is a lot of yellow, it somehow reminds me of a cold winter night. Don't get me wrong, I like that. Maybe the lights could be a little more visible. As well, there was almost too much of yellow. The bench though, is placed at a very nice angle and position. It brings a sense of comfort, yet, a sense of loneliness as well, and that is also something that I really appreciate.
Overall, I appreciate the numerous colours and the great blend of colours and the ambiance this painting gives. Good job!

This picture reminds me of a poem the Camões

How many graces had , the nature
Made a beautiful and rich treasure
And rubies and roses , snow and gold
Formed sublime and angelic beauty.

Incredible how art is connected to life, in everyday life, everything is connected . The music, painting, the fashion, gastronomy and so on.

All works are beautiful, hard to choose one to highlight, but for all there will certainly be a poem .

Sorry my sufferable English, I hope I have conveyed my sincere admiration.

I can't critique this. I'm not qualified to critique it. This is more than great art... This is art that changes history and definitions. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":o" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="375" title=":o (Eek)"/> Program won't accept less than one hundred words, so I'll say to the artist, Leoenid Afremov, that I am pretty blase about being impressed by stuff. But you are definitely in a class by yourself. The vision, and technique, in your work is like nothing I've ever seen, and though I don't know you, I will be rooting for you to experience tremendous success in your continued career. I am truly grateful to be able to look upon work that evokes such a reaction from me. ~Jesse Anderson~

I saw your art on first page of DeviantArt and immediately it calls my attention.
It's very cool the way you deal with colors and light.
The perspective (images near, are bigger, more far, smaller) seems so right as in a photo.
The shadows of trees, of seat, correctly placed over leaves, it's excellent!

Most of artists who choose night as theme, would use too dark colors in his/her paintings, what would lead to low contrast. Happily, Leonid don't fall in this mistake. In most paintings, colors as bright as spring share space on canvas with dark colors, without conflict.
As critique, I only would like to see dear Leonid try differents themes, not the night solely.

When i looked this paint i've thought if really exist a place like this... It's impressionant how it was made... It seems so real and the colours are simply perfect. The idea of the pank on the road is made for to invite the watcher to sit on it and imagine for a moment a world like this. I don't know if this sensation is only for me but i admire this art. And also the subject is good, the season is that one, the beautiful autumn. I can imagine how many patience needed to draw a paint like this and i do all my compliments, really fantastic artwork <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>.
Oh this piece reminds me of familiar places...
Beautiful painting!

Me encanta los tonos escojidos, porque armoniza entre los colores calidos, luminosos con los pequeños toques de tonos frios. Se complementan.
