I found the whole scene an inspiration that captured something of the joy, fun and excitemenrt of Christmas.

Dear Alan & Susan
We want to take this opportunity to express our thanks following the recent purchase of the picture of Venice. The warmth of colour and impressionist style were exactly what we were looking for.
We were made very welcome on arrival at the gallery and were very impressed with the professionalism - the cappuchino was delicious too !The picture arrived well wrapped and now occupies a prime spot where it has been much admired by friends and family.We were particulary impressed by your website with it's ease of navigation and enjoyed watching the video clip of the artist at work on location.With our thanks and every good wish.

Montone is a beautiful medieval hilltop town in the region of Umbria, the green heart of Italy.
I've used the rough texture of the watercolour paper to capture the light casting shadows on the warm stone work.
The long shadows and the couple strolling down the hill add movement to the scene.
This charming village is one of the places we take our guests on the painting holidays. www.reedartholidays.com

As I progressed with my painting, the mist gradually began to lift, revealing more of the bridge and more activity on the Grand Canal.
