Venetian Sunlight in Watercolour

Limited edition Print of 45

On our last trip to Venice, I spent considerable time painting various canal view in my trusty sketchbook. Towards the end of our short trip I found myself attracted to this busy view with Santa Maria Salute in the distance.

I made a couple of quick studies in watercolour as seen here which I used as a source of inspiration for this larger studio painting.

Watercolour of Venice

This new original Venice Paintings for Sale including this watercolour of Venice was completed just after the start of the Second Lockdown in the UK. It’s been a painting which I’ve wanted to do since our last visit to Venice in September 2018. As usual, I’d taken my trusty sketchbook and paints with a pocket brush. I seized any opportunity to capture this amazing city in watercolour.

To begin with I was mainly focusing on the moody and atmospheric canals with the distinctive architecture reflecting in the still waters. However, towards the end of our stay I found myself attracted to this busy view with Santa Maria Salute in the distance. Many of my prints of Venice feature the Santa Maria Salute, including this one Venetian Dawn.

Before starting on the finished painting, I remembered that I had painted some of the architectural features with lots of figures before back in 2006. I kept the appropriate page open before me. A reference photograph of the overall scene was also used for accuracy.

I’ve recently started using TikTok to create very short videos. I’ve also started to upload these to my Instagram account, so you can watch some of the stages of this painting in progress.

Dream of Venice in Black and White

“An enchanted Venice, in black and white, like a dream. But this is really the authentic Venice, a dream-reality that we must love and defend.”  —Salvatore Settis, author, If Venice Dies
