Venice is painted using oil and acrylic on canvas. It is a medium sized painting on an artist’s high quality canvas stretcher which is warp resistant.

The painting is made using large brushstrokes and the texture of the paint and brush marks are visible on the surface of the canvas. It is painted using a combination of oil and acrylic paint which gives it extreme vibrancy and shine in some areas.

Last year I went to exhibit in Santa Monica and at the end of my trip I went to Venice beach. The last morning I was there I went down to the promenade early in the morning and took some photographs of the people busking and skating down the sea front. There was so much to look at and see I didn’t notice the guy on the skateboard with the stick until I was back in my studio looking through the shots, but I wanted to include him in the work.
