Angolo Veneziano Della Via

8"x10" Oil On Gessobord

Venice painting #2. This painting was done from a photograph I took while traveling through Venice, Italy. This was one of those impulse shots. We were casually strolling down the street when I noticed this corner. It just struck me as being perfectly composed. I loved mostly the angles in this photo. It also caught my eye with its cozy charm. I love wrought iron. This painting was hard not to paint tightly but I feel I did a good job at painting a non-organic subject as loose as I could, one of my struggles as a painter. I am glad I finished it tonight, I was getting a little bored with it. Time to move on.
