Venice

This oil painting I have done from a photo during a visit last autumn. I have used muted limited palette again, but these colours appear quite bright on this reproduction. I`m not sure if it is really showing the mood has it was. I quite like these quick drying oils, it suites my immediate approach, I suppose!
I hope you find it interesting.

Please have a look at my website http://www.trevorlingard.co.uk/

I love seeing the way your distinctive watercolour style translates into oils. I really like this palette, soft and moody.
