Rainy Evening in Venice

About the Artwork

Rainy Evening in Venice is a study on color and water reflections. I painted it using one of my own photos taken from Venice, Italy a few months back. This is a view from within the Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square, in English), overlooking the canal to the south. In the background you can see the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore. Doge’s Palace is the building on the left, and the building on the right is the Old Library of Saint Marco.

It was fun trying to remove the plethora of people and transforming it into a sunset rainy scene! I also removed some of the clutter along the water line, which helps to transform it into a simpler and calmer scene.
