Ponte Rialto, Venezia # 2
The most beautiful city in the world
oil on canvas
24 x 30 cm
painted on location 27 july 2007
Reworked in studio 14 aug 2008
The weather here in Holland has been somewhat to hostile for a plein-air painter. High winds, raining on and off most of the day, grey cloudy skies. Guess my recent visit to Italy awoken my senses to the estetic beauty of that land. Last summer I found myself in Venice, with an art colleague, to visit the Biennalle, made 2 oils and a watercolor. This was the 2nd oil painting which has been shelfed for most of the time. I feel I have done justice to it, and now I wish to share it with you all.
