A Night in Murano


Very nicely painted Linda, I particularly like the reflection on the water, your choice of colours is excellent.

Many thanks Paul. The reflections are the pastel part.

Still works very well though Linda

You have certainly captured this very well Linda. You have overcome your initial problem so well. Superb.

Very atmospheric and dramatic, Linda.

Full of rich colour and atmosphere Linda and very well thought out and observed
