"Venice III" watercolor 14" X 28"

Venice III by April M Rimpo
Venice III captures Venice life using textures to provide the feel of the buildings, while maintaining the softness of the water in the canal.  As many of you know I love to use an orange/blue complementary color scheme.  Venice III screamed for those colors since those are common colors in Venice.  I just love the blue striped poles scattered along the canal where gondolas, water taxis, and other boats can tie up to let off their passengers.  This painting received an Honorable Mention award.
