Venice studio painting
I took one photo in Venice of a team of gondoliers practicing for the regatta. However rather than starting a with my favourite photo I thought I’d get the drawing and watercolour muscles exercised with another photo I’d taken. This painting is wrong in so many ways, though I’m glad to have attempted something bigger. I suppose it’s that much easier with plein aire to forgive yourself and move on. Anyway if you’re interested in seeing all the laboured mistakes even larger, have a look here.
