Venice Study from photo. 6 x 8 Oil on Panel.
Working with color shapes as a start I tried a
marbling technique to finish it. I like the
texture of the painting, but I miss the simple
color shapes. This was a great lesson in reducing
a complex photo down to just a few simple shapes.
The study was painted today at Howard Rose's
Thursday workshop at Bailey Arboretum. You
