This simple little study is of a bridge in a very narrow dark side canal, looking out towards the light of the Fondameta Nuova.

Once I had waxed the white for the sky and its reflection, then the stone grey for the bridge detail, I used a wash of different earth colours, terracotta, soft ochres and brick colours, put on with a 1" brush in vertical stripes, for the tall houses.

This piece is currently for sale in my 50 Years of Batik exhibition
