I’ve been fortunate to paint on location in Venice many times since my first visit in 1991. A small box of watercolour paints, travelling brush and a hand made sketchbook is all you need to capture its wonderful light, mood and atmosphere.
On a trip there in 2012 I recall taking the vaporetto across the dark waters of the lagoon to St Marks Square. This original watercolour has been inspired by my observations travelling on the vaporetto and my sketchbook studies and photographs of Venice.
You can watch a video on YouTube of me painting this watercolour.
