'Venice with Poles'1993
36" x 24" including frame
A peaceful lazy canal scene with candy striped mooring poles - a real feature of the canals of Venice. Here I have used them as the focus in the foreground, with the soft ochres and light terracotta of the beautiful stone arched Ponte del Squero bridge behind.
This is a large early piece. Later, I did a smaller study of the bridge from the same design but with red striped poles.
