The Gold House Venice Original Paintings
“Gold House, Venice Original Oil Painting | Venice Paintings – Alan Reed
The Gold House an Original Paintings of Venice is one of my favourite Italian cities. It’s full of interesting scenes, buildings and people to paint. Every time I visit Venice, I come away with a sketchbook containing pages of inspiration to develop into studio paintings. You can see a large collection of Paintings and Prints of Italy by visiting www.alanreed.com
Using Gold Leaf
Over the last few years I’ve been exploring ways of bringing Gold Leaf into my watercolours and oils. I like to produce artwork that will change in different lighting conditions. The oil painting of Buckingham Palace from Green Park is a typical example.
The Gold House, Paintings of Venice is a recent watercolour painting that combines Gold Leaf with my appreciation and love of the work of artists. For example John Singer Sargent and Edward Seago with my own sketchbook studies of Venice. Initially I wasn’t going to apply Gold Leaf to this simple watercolour painting. It started off as a watercolour demonstration for a painting class I was taking. In the lesson I was showing my students how to tackle an Edward Seago painting. However, after discussions and questions on how do you add Gold Leaf to a watercolour, I decided to show them!
