Venice Collection Button

Curated Collection - Venice

I was inspired to paint this after a trip to Venice in summer of 2023. I was returning after some 20 years and the images had stuck with me. I took lots of photos and used them to inform the development of these paintings.
Medium – I love alcohol inks and have been using them exclusively for many years but in this series I have also made use of acrylic and oil paints , and a little bit of collage ( pieces I made myself ) and texture. I have used these in a layered approach so that there are many lost and found details with strong elements of classical illustration using a pen/ marker for a nostalgic feel .Some gold highlights add contemporary touches and interest.

All the paintings in this series are boxed canvases and they have been professionally framed in black with champagne edge and slip as needed . Backs fitted with strings ready to hang .
