Rio de la Tolette Venice

Rio de la tolette venice

Venice, Italy, 15" x 11"

A smallish canal in Venice and a fairly typical scene with figures and small boats.  Quite a loose picture done with my three colour palette and a bit of fun trying to connect all the different shapes - the background - the boats up the canal side and the figures almost as one.  Just a minor bit of the use of white gouache on the railings on the bridge.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press 300 gms

This is so interesting - a painter's painting! The colour blends flow colour around the picture.
