Title: Gondolier in Venice
This original Venice, Italy oil painting is by artist Christopher Clark. This lovely scene from Venice was painted live during an oil painting demonstration at the Jerry’s Artarama in Tempe near Phoenix. I was promoting my new oil painting classes and workshops that I’m teaching there.
While strolling through Venice this past summer, I discovered that there’s a paintable scene every 10 feet. Wherever you turn, any time of day, you are surrounded by breathtaking scenes, so the only difficult thing remains choosing which one you’re going to capture. This scene took place as I walked across one of the countless bridges spanning the canals. I was taken with the wide array of colors happening among the buildings and the reflections on the water. The gondolier riding by was just perfect timing as well.
