Grand Canal Venetian Dawn

Susan and I spent a week in the Dolomites with an old Venetian lady who has a holiday home there. I spent the week awestruck by the majesty and spectacle of God’s creation which was so evident throughout the Dolomites.

I produced many sketchbook watercolours painted on location. At the end of the week, we then went to Venice for a few days where we were able to enjoy the Venetian Regatta. It was at the end of our stay in Venice that I was inspired by this view of the Grand Canal which I have titled Venetian Dawn.

The painting was inspired by my own studies painted from the Accademia Bridge.

I also used a number of different photographs taken by myself during my trips to Venice. I kept referring to the first limited edition print I published of the Grand Canal throughout the painting process. For other limited edition prints of Venice and Italy, go to my website

Since I first wrote this blog post back in 2011, I’ve been fortunate to return to Venice several times. We had a short but wonderful trip in 2018, travelling with our son and his wife. Our son wanted to see the place where he used to live when he was a little boy. I did a number of sketchbook watercolours, including the canal where he dropped his toy cars into the dark waters, never to be seen again! One of the sketches was of the scene which became a handmade card for my wife Susan.
