Serata Venezania (Venetian Sky)

Acrylic on Canvas
10" x 8"
This is a landmark scene at the entrance to the Grand Canal in Venice.  The "Santa Maria della Salute" is four hundred years old and is held up by over one million pine poles!  The contrasts of color and brightness along with ancient architecture attracted me to this scene.  I wanted to quit halfway through!  The detail on the building is so exacting and I was using a four hair brush at times.
