Venice Canal – Almost finished!

Click to Enlarge

I’m posting this because I’m running out of time and won’t be able to finish it for several weeks.  This watercolor is about 8″ x 8″ and is the near finished version from the prior post.  I’m not sure that I didn’t over worked it, but I’ll finish it out anyways.  You”ll have a great week and week end and I hope to have some Spring break paintings to show when I get back.

  1. No, it does not look over-worked to me; I love all the details you put in it, give it a real feel to it. Excellent work as always, Ryan!
    You have yourself a wonderful Spring-break vacation too!

  3. You have captured the real Venice! lovely but decaying – full of real life scenarios in addition to the drama and glamour. Fantastic!

    • Thank you Linda,
      I loved the clothes across the canal, when you think of Venice, you think of romance, boating down the canal in the evening with the one you love, but not with peoples tighty whities, and grannie panties hanging above

    WOW !! I love how you did the water! And the buildings are so real!!! It is a beautiful piece, one could look at it over and over, and still notice something exciting, a shape, a colour… It is very rich !

    • Thank you,
      Sorry it took awhile to respond, but I’m enjoying spring break in Florida. I’ll return monday, hopefully with some plein air or paintings from here. Thanks

    I just love how this is coming out. It’s so beautiful! My dad has a little photography show in his town right now featuring Venice. This painting reminds me of his photos 🙂

    • Thanks Amber, but I’m sending you the painting, you don’t have to kiss up or anything! But it always helps! LOL
