This painting is part of my “Memories of Venice” series and it was inspired by my own photo reference from a recent trip to Venice. The intricate metalwork, the textures of the crumbling brickwork, the unique green of the canal waters under that very special Venice light…all this fading beauty called to be painted.
This painting was done in a modified poured technique which allows colors to mix beautifully.
