Watercolor “Venezia canal” measures 16” x22”. The sunlight strains to find a path down the narrow canals that capture my attention with the play of light. Water reflections and shadows cast from the old Italian buildings. This is and has been an artistic playground. Painting the water reflections and shadows is always an experiment in painting what you see rather than what your head thinks. My bigger brushes are getting more use as I am trying to paint without worry and fuss.
