Art Critique of "Rain Princess" by Leonid Afremov

A short review of a captivating piece relating an intense concoction of vivid city lights and their fierce clash with impending nature.

Wow. Just wow.

I simply cannot take my eyes off the exceptional use of colour in this painting. Originally created with an oil knife, my thoughts flick to the bright lights of the city, mixing the shimmering reflections of the night into a turbulent cocktail of pace, thrill and emotion. The sharp aggressive streaking through the colour fiercely depicts the downward onslaught of rain, yet is almost swallowed by the overwhelming vibrancy of human perseverance versus nature.

My only critique of this piece would be the title “Rain Princess”, which in my opinion does not wholeheartedly illuminate the power and intensity shaped within the oil strokes.
