Colours and Shades of Venice.

Full of colour and movement, this watercolour of Venice radiates the heat of the day and the cool of the shade. Finished with a soft white double mount it will look beautiful with any decor and bring back happy holiday memories every time you glance at it. Scroll down for more information.

The colours and shades of Venice are rich and textured. Even the ageing buildings, rusty railings and flaking paint have an artistic air about them.When you stroll through the back streets there is a painting waiting around every corner and a spectacular view from each bridge you cross.

This is a favourite scene of mine. I took the original photo on a trip to Italy several years ago. There is something special about the balance of space in this particular image. I come back to it time and again and paint it in different styles, or using different mediums or tools.

This painting has been created using a pen and wash technique. The colours are deep and rich, the scratchiness of the pen on the watercolour paper brings texture and adds to the 'aged' feel of the buildings.

I used Daniel Smith and Winsor and Newton watercolour products and it is painted on St Cuthbert's Mill HP Watercolour paper which is very smooth.

The image is approximately 10x8 inches. The outside mount is just over 15 1/4 x 13 inches. It comes cellpohaned for protection.
