Venice, Italy Painting

Updated: Apr 27, 2018

This painting is inspired by my recent visit to Venice, Italy. It did not start out with the intention of the memory of Venice but it occurred to me along the way. The shape of the gothic vase and the water in the background made me consider the influence of the Italian city. Also in the mix is the influence of Matisse.

This painting is about the paint too. It was applied with a palette knife and is oil and cold wax. The wax gives the paint and application a feeling of life and activity.
