Venice Canal

Finished this one a few weeks ago from a reference photo that I got from the WetCanvas references library. Done in acrylics and what I like best about it is the way the water came out. Lil

Re: Venice Canal

I agree, the water is great- lots of shimmer and movement.

Re: Venice Canal

The water is excellent! I love the reflections and the ripples and I also like how you worked the lower part of the buildings.

Re: Venice Canal

Thank you all for your comments. I have found acrylics to be challening but I like the bright colors it has and have tried to control its intensity. Thanx again and thanx for looking. Lil
