#242 'Sunset, Santissimo Redentore Church' 8x10"

There are such great silhouette shapes for sky lines in Venice. Added to which beautiful light and colour = I could keep painting this amazing city!

The historic wooden posts in the water helps break up the strong horizon line and make the composition more interesting.
I made a grey with Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue then added the orangie sky mix to it to make it hazy and give a sense of space and colour harmony.
I used quick thick paint (hardly any medium to thin it) which gives a silvery glossy finish that adds to the subject.

  1. Initially, I found the posts too heavy and dark. distracting away from the wonderful distant silhouette and sky. Maybe if one was to see them for oneself then they would have more meaning.
