Nimbus in Venice
JANUARY 21, 2008
Venice, Italy, lives on in my imagination in some new black and white drawings. I was lucky to live in Venice once for a half a year, working as a visiting artist in a printmaking shop. Venice really has a hold on me, and my love for this city often expresses itself in my personal work.
Here's the whole drawing.
Another drawing, a little more fantastical.
Here's a detail of the above image. It's taken me 10 years of working with a brush and ink to discover the joy of rough brushwork for atmospheric effects.
