Venice Italy in Watercolors!

Venezia - Italy

An oldie watercolor painting of Venice….

Time after time I like to look back at my old watercolor paintings.  I like to see how much my art change and my skills grow during the years!  Recently I came across this painting that I made in 2013 around this time of the year. It is almost four years ago and I like to re-share it with you all. This painting is very dear to me because is a view of “Venice” Venezia in Italian,  it is one beautiful city  in Italy, my native country! 
It is a view of Venice that I just painted out of my visual memory without any photo reference. It is a loose watercolor, I remember I was practicing the loose technique so hard to master! I know there is a lot that I could’ve done better, it was a fast painting and somehow, I am pleased with how this painting turned out!  I think I was able to capture the feeling and essence of Venice. If you have been to Venice then maybe you recognize this view. I wasn’t born in Venice it’s not my hometown. I was born in Naples another beautiful city on the sea. That’s why I love the ocean so much and  I love to paint water, there is something about water that it is so inspiring to me in many ways, artistically and not. I like the reflections and the colors. I often base my palette on the beautiful range of colors of the sea.  The sea and the ocean are very often captured also in my photography!

Details about Watercolor:
 I used  French Artists Watercolors  Sennelier  l’Aguarelle and I painted on a Canson watercolor paper 140 lb cold press. 

You can see more of my Paintings visiting my  GALLERY  there are several Galleries you find  them in the drop down menu under Watercolors.

Wish you a great rest of the week stay creative!

Thank You!

  2. I loooove Venezia! I especially adore the little islands outside the city. When I came to Murano I just wanted to live there! 💖💖💖. I love your painting, I love the light and softness of it. 😊💖😊💖


  3. It is always wonderful to look back and see how our style and creativity has change/grown over time. So, will you be doing a Naples painting? (just checking) 🙂
