Venice Night View Modern Textural Impressionist Stylized Cityscape
Painting - Oil On Canvas Paper
"Venice Night View" by Mona Edulesco.
Modern impressionist impasto palette knife oil painting on canvas paper 50x40cm.
The fantastic view from the Campanile of San Giorgio Maggiore inspired me to paint this nightscape. It was one of my favorite moments when I visited Venice a few years ago.
The painting was realized in impasto technique, with heavy textures of oil paint applied with a diversity of palette knives.
I have always loved to approach my urban paintings in a myriad of ways. I enjoy stylizing architectural forms in various manners. This has always been one of my goals, even a preoccupation from the time I was studying at the school of architecture until the present. The versatility of oil paint along with my prototypic work with palette knives allows me to play with the urban forms abstracting the city in an unconstrained manner.
Venice is one of Italy's top travel cities and a beautiful, romantic destination with many attractions. Its small, traffic-free streets along the winding canals make for great walking. You'll find many magnificent churches and palaces, lively squares, and interesting shops. Venice actually consists of 117 bodies of land connected by more than 400 bridges over its 150 canals. The Grand Canal is like main street, cutting through the center of the city.
