Venice Practice #8 - Using my 3-colour palette
Two demos - same subject

Venice Practice #9 - Not all boats and canals

Venice 2017 practice #9

Venice, Italy, 15" x 11".

Another non-canal/boat Venice painting for my up and coming workshop there.  Had a bit of fun this one with the splattering and dark shadows on the right.  Putting a bit more dark in the centre background, between the buildings, hopefully made the two figures pop out a bit more.  I think with Venice you have to treat the architecture and windows in either a very loose way, or maybe like and illustrator and take time with all the details.  Being loose helps that weathered look....

HI Tim,
I'm enjoying your upcoming trip demos to Venice. Wish I were going...!
I can't find the 3 colors you're using to produce these lovely paintings. Each one is unique and very nice. Please share the colors when you get the time.

From Sennelier - rose red, cinerious blue and sennelier yellow
