Rialto Bridge

‘Rialto Bridge’, acrylic, 60x60cm

When we visited here in June last year there was a bridal procession going over this famous bridge and everyone in the wedding party including the guests wore white. It was quite a spectacle. This is my very loose interpretaion of a much loved landmark in Venice, the Rialto Bridge. I wanted to painted an immediate response to this image, limiting my colour palette and using a gold shimmer in the mixes (which you can’t see in this photo) to portray the richness of this wonderfully romantic place.
