VENICE ITALY CANAL by TOM BROWN

This is a 7x5 inch original oil painting on a Masonite panel, showing a canal in Venice Italy. I was intrigued by the architecture and the play of sunlight and shadow on the buildings in this narrow canal. This painting has very thick applications of rich, juicy oil paints, which lends an interesting texture to the surface of the painting.

While visiting Venice I created many paintings of the canals directly from life (en plein air). And I did many other sketches and studies for reference to use back home in my studio. This is one of my favorite paintings of Venice. I hope you enjoy it too.
