|High Waters in Venice|
I was a bit hesitant to start this due to the complexity of the buildings. I had to simplify them and to force myself not to fiddle. Easy to say!. Also when I do larger paintings (this is 13" x 17" or 33 x 43 cm) like every rookie I tend to stiffen. To make things simpler, I used only three colors for most of the painting - ultramarine, raw sienna and burnt sienna, then added some alizarin crimson for the red details in the foreground.Well, I think it turned out OK.
