When standing on the shoulders of giants one is likely to encounter dandruff, pimples, blackheads not to mention some really nasty greasy unwashed hair (can giants afford shampoo?). At least on the ground you can avoid their droppings. (This is all metaphorically speaking of course except the bit about the shampoo). ((Some extra mileage could be gained through a pataphorical view)).
Most of the gondola's had just left when I took this picture but still I thought it nice to share, so you can kind of get an idea of the surroundings... So when I found this place (which was after a long walk in a seemingly unknown direction) and painted the scene with the Gondoleers, I thought it best to continue walking into the unknown, and discover new things, although after I turned around and followed the narrow path out, it turned out that I was "yes" right in the centre of Piazza San Marco!! It was unbelievable. There I met one of my good friends and we went for a coffee. Afterwards she showed my the old library, and walking into that old building I was overwhelmed with amazent and decided to do a second watercolor. Thank you Gloria!! 😊 #painting#watercolor#watercolour#watercolorpainting#pleinair#pleinairpainting#paintingfromlife#fromlife#bacinoorseolo#gondola#venice#venezia#italy#italia
My portrait of Colonel Clemence is complete. John was the best company and I enjoyed having him in the studio with me so much. I will really miss his visits but luckily will be seeing him soon😊 #portraiture#fromlife
Here's a better shot of this quick study. The texture makes it a bit difficult to photograph. Oil on heavy weave linen laid on panel. At some point you have a thing that is indistinguishable from love for the materials if it isn't love itself. A darkened heart may be improved by the beauty that the eye beholds.
