Morning Light on the Rio St Formosa Venice


Morning Light on the Rio St Formosa Venice Original Oil 51cm x 41cm on Primed Belgian Linen
Ramon’s Inspiration for this painting:”Venice is one of the few cities in the world that can truly be described as unique.  Behind the well known area of St. Marks Square and the Doge’s Palace are to be found a world of pretty and often confusing narrow cobbled alleyways leading to little picturesque bridges that span the many canals winding their way through the ancient city.These tiny waterways are the main transport routes through the city and as they wind their way through Venice their green waters reflect the colours of this ancient city – reflections that shatter and regroup as the gondolas and market boats pass silently by.Here on the Rio Santa Maria Formosa in the Saint Marco District the faded ochres and pinks of the old buildings are captured in a shaft of sunlight as a gondolier waits for his passenger to embark”.
