Church of Santa Maria – Venice

£1,500.00 £1,350.00


A unique painting in mixed media in two styles – blending Classical and Contemporary visualisation to create an audacious work of art. The sky in particular is a more concerned concept to generate energy rather than a backdrop of blue sky with cotton wool clouds.

The reflected buildings on the canal is painted in bold dynamic brush strokes – to render a stunning contrast – power and  impact are the two main ingredients that inspires this unique artist’s impression of Venice. The gift-of-the-extraordinary is the message to the viewer.
