Castello Venice Italy

Castello venice

Venice, Italy, 15" x 11"

The Arsenale area of Venice and a fairly quiet canal.  Based on a photo of mine taken last year.  Good exercise in simplification and leaving out all the architectural details and just going for an impression of the old buildings and all the different colours you find in their old facades.  Again a contra jour, into the light study which works well for figures and light things against the shadows.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
