Fondamenta Arsenale Venice

Fondamenta Arsenale Venice

Venice, Italy, 15" x 11"

The right hand tower and the entrance to the shipyard.  Maybe an interesting angle to paint just the one tower and part of the footbridge.  I introduce a few figures in the foreground, connecting with the background shadows so that I can get a bit of contrast with their lighter clothing.  Also I have simplified the parapets along the wall of the museum on the right, but still try to get the perspective about right.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
