A Fine Art Original Watercolour Painting

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.

Venice by Night

 

I’ve been fortunate to paint on location in Venice by night many times since my first visit in 1991. A small box of watercolour paints, travelling brush and a hand made sketchbook. This is all you need to capture its wonderful light, mood and atmosphere. 

 

I recall taking the vaporetto across the dark waters of the lagoon to St Marks Square. The original watercolour of Venice by Night was inspired by my observations of this trip. Travelling on the vaporetto at night inspired my sketchbook studies and photographs of Venice.

Living in Venice

My love affair with Venice began in June 1991. My wife Susan had lived there for 5 years in the 1980’s and had loved the Italian way of life. She  made many loyal and lasting friendships. Right from the first night we met, she had shared many stories of her life there and was keen for me to see where she and her two children had lived. We spent a three days in Venice, staying with friends who lived in Marghera on the mainland. I recall getting emotional on the vaporetto as we left Venice, wondering if we would ever return. I had no need to worry, we’ve since been back eight times, capturing so many different aspects of Venetian life in paint and through photography. I’ve had the good fortune of being able to sell my paintings and prints of Italy to a growing audience.
