Wonderful buildings and reflections portrayed in this painting of Venice.Lovely soft colours of the buildings and the light blue adds a water effect, with the ripples on the surface of the water.5***** Regards Angela Susan

Thanks, Eric! Glad you like it... I thought it would be harder to do, but once you study the image well... you can see nature's work and then you reproduce it on canvas! Appreciate your comments.

Thanks Mike! Always appreciate your comments. The photo is not the best, I might try to rephotograph it to get the better value of the colour contrasts... it's a bit pale compared to the actual one! Thanks again.

Exactly as I remember it too! I like the light and shadow effect on the right side house and the reflections in the water. Great job!

Artist Statement
for Joan Hutchingame
Joan HutchingameHi everyone! I'm just a budding artist! I've always longed to paint but put it off as an activity in my golden years. I was convinced to start earlier than later, so I went for it. I seem to feel that someone is painting through me... I always loved and was good at drawing but had never experienced oil painting. I immediately fell in love with it and would like to try other mediums. I've taken some courses with a few known Québec artists but now want to try on my own for a while.

HI Graham I am a fan of pop art so I really love this one , love the person leaning over to get what's needed on a hot summer's day , money for ice cream .. I... view answer
