#418 'Sunset Campo Barnaba, Venice' 40x50cm

A studio painting of a small plein air study from my recent Venice trip.

This is the plein air painting and the starting point for the bigger painting above...

1.Drawing made on location, helps to really see the subject.
2. Studio shot to give an idea of scale and palette.
3. My sky colours! and part of the water.

I enjoyed painting bigger, wanting to keep it still fresh and lively but more finished and 'special' looking. 
I saw this view every day as it was right next to our house, I would look at it and think I want to paint that, so pleased I have!

  1. Wow, great painting Clare. The detail is exquisite and the canal reflections magnificent.
