So many people urged me to go to Venice ~ I am so glad I did! The light, people, action ~ all were magical like no other place on earth. The experience is one I will take with me forever.
So how to capture such an experience in a painting? In Venice I found myself fascinated with the light and shadows of people moving along the cobbled stone walkways. A constantly ebbing and flowing movement of shapes, colors and light. Nothing stationary but the timelessness of the place itself.
So how to capture the feeling of movement, timelessness and magic?
I took a stab at it on this little painting. I have included some detail pics of the painting, as the palette knife work got quite involved. I think the texture conveys as much of the feeling as do the colors.
