"Buona Sera" original 6x6 watercolor on paper $195.00 BUY NOW
Here it is in a home setting. "Buona Sera" has a 1 1/2" white border around all sides of the 6x6 making the overall dimensions 11 x 11. The fabulous thing about a watercolor is that you can mat large and make a very substantial piece.
Today's painting is in response to the Daily Paintworks weekly challenge. This week's challenge was to paint to music. As soon as I read the challenge the song "Buona Sera" by Louis Prima popped in my head. I downloaded the song and listened to it repeatedly while painting this piece. I let my brush dance across the page to the rhythm of the music to create the ripples in the water. Click on the you tube video at the bottom to hear the song by Louis Prima.
The reference photo for this painting was taken during a trip to Venice. As we were walking back to our hotel during sunset this is the view we had. So romantic! I love Venezia:)

Beautiful Venice...love this piece...saw it over at Daily Paintworks too....ReplyDelete
The Venice piece is really phenomenal, Carrie! xxReplyDelete
Great artworks! The one with Venice view especially :)ReplyDelete
Gorgeous as usual Carrie! And I LOVE seeing it in that easel in a home setting, I'm in love with the doorknobs below too.ReplyDelete
How did I miss this one, Carrie. Most beautiful sunset I've seen in a long time. I didn't know you left that white border around your pieces. How interesting. My paintings usually end haphazardly past the size markings so I have to mat them. I learn something everyday.ReplyDelete
Both are lovely watercolors but I particularly like the Venice piece. Lovely graded washes in the sky and the sparkle effect on the water is wonderful. I know how difficult this is to do.ReplyDelete
amazing as always...the glistening sunlight dancing on the water is breathtaking!! bravo! enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
I love Venice, too. This sunset scene is so beautiful, Carrie.ReplyDelete
