"Venice the Most Serene City" (oil on linen; 12" x 12") sold


The best way to see Venice is by a gondola.  Hop into a gondola and glide by the famous Basicila di Santa Maria della Salute, on the way to the Piazza San Marco.  The domes of "The Salute" glow in the golden light of late afternoon.  No wonder that Venice is called the Most Serene City!

Step 1: Drawing for "Venice in Late Afternoon"

Step 2: Transparent underpainting

Step 3: The first layer of opaque paints down

Step 4: Time to refine the painting
