oil on canvas, 40″ x 30″ – When I first visited Venice more than 40 years ago, I was baffled by the light. The colour of the light, the way it bounces around in even the darkest of corners and alleyways, the way it defines the unique colour of the city – it has taken me a long time to begin to understand how to represent this light. And yet, every time I think I have begun to get a handle on it, it presents me with new challenges.
