This painting is based on a photo I took when my husband and I were in Venice last fall. Normally this is not something I'd choose to paint, but I was so in love with the image that I abandoned all good sense and insisted on painting it. As you might guess, it was time consuming. Definitely my most ambitious painting to date. I started this painting the end of last year, and then had to put it away for a while so I could get other projects done. I'm very happy to have finally finished it.
For those who are interested, here are a few WIP pictures I took during the painting process.
