An Artist In Venice Italy

An Artist In Venice Italy   16x20   Oil on canvas panel

I have a good start, I believe. This much was done in about four or five hours. I need to let the paint set up a bit then work on the arttist, building details and especially the water.

This is from a photo but for the life of me I don't know where it came from - aside from the internet.

 February 27th - Ready to call this "done". I'll put this painting aside then look at it in a few days. the figure to the far left bothers me.


  1. I like the green colour on the woman's cloth.
    Good painting , Ken

  2. Looking good, Ken. But hurry before Venice finishes up under water!!!

  3. Hi Sylviane! I haven't "seen" you for a while and was wondering how you are. Thank you for your comment - I hope that I don't botch this painting while I work to "make it better"! :-)

    It was nice to "hear" from you
    Ken B.

  4. Carolina, Thank you for a ready "excuse" if I can't fix this painting! :-) I can say that "the painting was looking really good until it sank beneath the waves".

    My leg is doing much better so I am able to paint for longer periods of time. Hooray!

    Thanks for you good humor
    Ken B.

  5. I am glad you are active blogger this days and your leg recovers.
    Interesting painting. I like the blue of water and sky. Who is the one in white trousers and black top at the left?
    I decided to give you the award. Of course you can do whatever you want with it, but I NEED to express my good attitude to you and your blogging. Details here:

  6. Gee, you have been very productive *clap* I can recognize your style by now, very soft colors.
