Venetian bridge 23
Venetian bridge 23
Oil on canvas

Venice has over 300 bridges, the actual total seems debated for some reason. I painted this as quickly as possible to retain a sense of immediacy, laying in color in broad swatches and using long uninterrupted brushstrokes in some places. Palette: Dioxazine purple, ultramarine blue, sap green, alizarin crimson, yellow ochre, cad red medium, cad yellow medium and zinc titanium white.
