Study for Late Night Stroll in Venice
6 x 8 x 0.25 in., oil on linen hardboard
This small 6" x 8" study is one I did in preparation for Late Night Stroll in Venice. I had to paint the figures very small in the larger 12x16 study, and I was concerned about getting their proportions, gestures, and walking gait correct. I figured I should try painting a zoomed in shot of the people walking to practice the specific figures.
I'm pretty happy with the result. It reminds me of strolling through Venice at night with my loved ones. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed painting it.
