Venice Trip February 2018

Thursday 31 May 2018

February took me to Venice for a couple of weeks, a painters paradise which left me feeling excited and inspired despite the rainy weather. Venice has a charm to it that never really fades for me; the light in Venice is unique, and having not been before in February I discovered that I really loved the challenge of capturing the rainy reflections and muted colours.

On one of my first days there I was lucky to find a spot to paint under the arches in Piazza San Marco. Here I had a wonderful view of the Palace and was particularly drawn to the geometry of the subject and muted greys and pinks that lay before me. The painting is shown to the left.
