Venice is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The gondola rides are something everyone should do once if you ever go there. This was a difficult picture to draw much less paint. Since everything is built on water, and I was in a gondola when I took the picture, this was a challenge. I learned how to work with glazes for the stone in the buildings and on the water. The result was a soft glow from the turquoise and blue glazes used. A glaze was also used on the stone archway to age it. The picture was extremely detailed.
