Venice Practice #1

Venice 2017 practice #1

Venice, Italy, 15" x 11".

A practice for my up and coming Venice Workshop late September.  This painting is based on a photo I took on my last visit there in 2012 (I think).  It was cloudy every day on my last visit, so hoping for some sunshine on this next one.  When painting Venice, I try to think what are the trademark things that speak Venice.  So of course it's these narrow canals with buildings either side, the angular tops to the foot bridges but a round arch, the lighter colour border around windows, barges and small craft, and the tall mooring posts.
