Venice,Gondola ride.

Oil painting

I felt like a change of scenery, so using google street view I went exploring the ancient city of Venice. I have taken hundreds of snapshots of little scenes that captured my attention. Using these as reference material I created this painting. Venice is so picturesque that I will most likely be painting many more. Hopefully one day I will make enough money selling my art, that I will be able to travel to Venice in person and enjoy not just the sights but also the sounds, smells and, even taste some of their Italian cuisine.
