Expectation Of Love by "world renown artist" Leonid Afremov is an acrylic painting on canvas. It was made with a palette-knife technique, which is a mix of brush and knife work with oil paint. Most of this artist's work has similar, extremely bright colors like this piece. In his artist's statement he talks about his interest in exploring his skills, and improving them. And he says, "The best way to improve your skills is to create better and different versions of older work.", which I think is really interesting.
