An oldie watercolor painting of Venice….
Time after time I like to look back at my old watercolor paintings. I like to see how much my art change and my skills grow during the years! Recently I came across this painting that I made in 2013 around this time of the year. It is almost four years ago and I like to re-share it with you all. This painting is very dear to me because is a view of “Venice” Venezia in Italian, it is one beautiful city in Italy, my native country!
It is a view of Venice that I just painted out of my visual memory without any photo reference. It is a loose watercolor, I remember I was practicing the loose technique so hard to master! I know there is a lot that I could’ve done better, it was a fast painting and somehow, I am pleased with how this painting turned out! I think I was able to capture the feeling and essence of Venice. If you have been to Venice then maybe you recognize this view. I wasn’t born in Venice it’s not my hometown. I was born in Naples another beautiful city on the sea. That’s why I love the ocean so much and I love to paint water, there is something about water that it is so inspiring to me in many ways, artistically and not. I like the reflections and the colors. I often base my palette on the beautiful range of colors of the sea. The sea and the ocean are very often captured also in my photography!
Details about Watercolor:
I used French Artists Watercolors Sennelier l’Aguarelle and I painted on a Canson watercolor paper 140 lb cold press.
