Stop! Stop! Flee Venice and go back home to paint those exquisite still lifes and paysages! You are just superb at those!
Don't go anywhere, Julian! I truly enjoy your Venice/Paris cityscapes. This is yet another one that I don't find words to describe other than gorgeous. I love love love your looseness with everything in this one. What an awesome painting! *sigh*
Not quite up to your usual very high standard.
Here I feel the artist who opens his heart.With nothing on. More than a postcard,a private letter,addressed to his community of fans. Free brushstrokes,making mysterious signs;nearly an automatic writing. Unposed.fragile.Unsteady. An artist,in haste,who shows evidence of a world,which could be not to be.
It amazes me that the minute you go somewhere different,trying something new, people are critical! Go for it, Julian, I hope you enjoy every minute in Venice. I like both of these quick, free paintings.
To me this conveys the mysteriousness of Venice on a foggy day. The water, the workboats, (that fascinated me on my stay there last spring) all wonderfully lively. Thank you, Julian- and DO STAY in Venice. I also look forward to your cityscapes and any other landscapes you capture for our delight.
