Venice night's


                               11 x 9  Oil ( On Gessoed watercolor paper )
                                                                     DETAIL
This is for Vern. I have to thank him for getting me started in Oil so I had to jump in and try doing it in his moleskins for the flying moleskins project.
Since he has been creating scenes from his trip to Germany I thought I would do the same and give him a scene from my trip to Italy.
This is the only night scene I have of Venice and I've been wanting to paint it.
So here you are Vern, a first for me, a scene at night in oil.
(Just got an update on Haiti.. The group is making an impact - they are on the radio and news of Port O Prince for how much they are blessing the city of Jeremie)

Beautiful. I've been thinking about oil..never tried it before - maybe the water soluble ones. Is that what you use?

Wow, Dominique! This is so beautiful. I immediately wished I was part of the nightlife along that waterfront...a nice and romantic dinner with someone special...sigh...Lucky Vern!

Nancy,
I just started working in Oils these are Winton .. not water soluble. You should try . Thanks for your comment.

AutumnLeaves,
I cropped the picture but my daughter is on the left and it was a delightful place so enchanting.
Thank for stopping by.


Prabha,
Thank you. It is a fabulous city I recommend to everyone to go at least ounce.

Dominique, I really love this piece and thank you for creating such a wonderful painting in my book. The beutiful colour and strong light are so dramatic. You are taking to oil very quickly, and I'm thrilled that you are enjoying them so much. They suit you so well.

Sorry for the late comment, but I was away for the last couple of weeks.
