Pen & Wash 'Venice'

Pen & Wash 'Venice'

Simple free effective - nice one Fiona

Well done, Fiona. Very spontaneous pen and wash. Love it!

Many thanks Michael, Mia for your kind comments.

Lovely sketch Fiona, well done. It looks like a fairly quick sketch (hope I'm right here :) and the resulting spontaneous image is very effective. I especially like the buildings on the right and those tricky gondolas look good! I honestly thought that everyone had a Venice painting. Come to think of it, most have a poppy picture in their collection as well :) Do you? !!

Hi Louise, yes a fairly quick sketch, about 20 minutes. It was too cold to sit in my painting room to do a full watercolour, so sat by the fire and did this instead! Re: poppy picture, I have a very dubious poppy field picture in my gallery. Thanks for taking the time to comment Louise.

I'm new to POL, Fiona, so I thought I'd start by looking at the work of those who had kindly commented on mine! I don't know how many times I've been to Venice so I was immediately attracted to your pen and wash picture. In a few deft strokes you have captured the spirit of LA Serenissima. I like it very much - Joe

Many thanks Joe, you are very kind.

Excellent stuff Fiona, shades of Turner. Now I think I have a couple of pastels I did from Turner's Venice pics, this has reminded me. If I haven't already done so I may put them up. best Mick

Now, I have a Venice painting Louise, well a sketch really. I have no reference material of my own so I have used a watercolour of Ted Wessons as a guide. Thank you for the inspiration Louise :) Done on cartridge paper.
