Venice is one of those cities that sits high on the must see list of most people. It has romance, intrigue, history, gondolas and the amazing carnival. A favourite of many an artist also.
When I saw this painting I recognized the view as that of the Church of #SanteMariadellaSalute in Venice. It is one of those places that artists have painted for centuries. Painted by day and night Venice has the added benefit of having canals which allow artists to experiment with the effects of watery reflection. Painted by JMW Turner, EJ Poynter and other great painters yet this watercolour to me looks to be more reminiscent of #HerculesBrabazon and his use of white in his images.
Another image of Sante Maria della Salute and a print showing the #GrandCanal with the Salute in the distance. Both images are of the canal at night with the marvellous effects light playing on the water. The canal snakes it’s way through Venice. It is almost 2.5 miles long , ranges from 90 to 270 feet in width and runs an average depth of 16 feet and is one of the major water traffic corridors for the city.
And if you perchance roam those byways of Venice you might happen upon some small forgotten square which is yet to be explored. Treasures to be searched out and experienced. A place of beauty portrayed in history past, present and future.
