Trying a new style, again

I was feeling disappointed that I couldn’t loosen up my style more with my last picture and so sought inspiration again on Pinterest. I’ve been following an amazing Australian artist, Joseph Zbukvic and I love his paintings of Venice.

So, of course, I wanted to give one a try. Just working out the how’s and why’s of his wonderful paintings is a big enough puzzle but putting them down on paper is very tricky indeed. Here it my lumpy attempt….

Venice 3


It has a very different feel to my previous painting and one I’d love to emulate. I’ve got to watch  my verticals but overall I’ve learnt a lot. The big question is can I apply this to my own subject matter?
