It’s raining, hurray!
I like to work when it’s raining outside. The sun doesn’t call me anymore, so I can concentrate on images and geometrical figures. The rhythmic sound of water drops is soothing and I forget about deadlines for a moment. I even like that it’s getting dark in the room. Not that I prefer artificial light, but due to it, I feel cozy while the nasty weather plays in the street. It knocks at my window but I’m not that stupid! As Gandalf said: ’You shall not pass!’J. And I go on creating designs for carpets. The best is when a client relies on your taste. That’s when my imagination rubs its hands in jubilation and can’t wait to start working. I’m so glad when the result pleases not only me. Sometimes the customer asks to make some changes in the final design and I do it eagerly cause I should never let the client leave unsatisfied.
My plan B!
I experiment with colors.
- Pastel shades of pink look very nice in girls’ bedrooms.
- Black and white patterns would be perfect for a study as they won’t distract you.
- Though people are often afraid of bright hues, I convince them to change their mind. What’s more, no one has ever regretted about changing the decision.
Sometimes I have to deal with tough customers, who remain skeptical about vivid colors even after my well-prepared speech. But I always have a contingency plan and gonna share my secret with you! If somebody says that vibrant hues are psychedelic, show him oil canvases by Leonid Afremov. Look at his style of painting rain link. Awesome, don’t you agree? The artist has depicted my favorite kind of weather. In addition, it’s windy because the man can hardly hold an umbrella. The two probably haven’t seen each other for a long time – the man’s holding the lady tight and their kiss is so passionate! Pay special attention to the background of this artwork too. Motley spots sit on the trees, appear between the streetlamps – they’re leaves which can’t help dancing under the rain. Each color of the rainbow was used by Afremov to create this magnificent piece of art. Bright palette adds warmth and sensuality to the image. It’s in no way psychedelic, crazy, mind-blowing or any other adjective used by people who don’t understand the positive influence of deep colors. If you like the rain painting pictures by Leonid Afremov as much as I do, visit his online gallery and find out more about the artist and his wonderful works! Good luck!
