This is in my opion your best work so far!
Breathtaking! My only wish is that I could afford to own this piece of beauty!

Venice in the morning mist or late at night; both are unsurpassed. And you've captured the "morning mist" masterfully. Let's see what you can do about "night" and its special magic.

That's a really nice one Julian. I love subtle coloured greys.

Visit our friends who own Osteria Oliva Nero, Castello 3417/18. Tell Isabella and Dino I sent you! Wonderful food, wonderful people. Enjoy!

You and Turner! I think you have captured the special lurking Venetian quality of the Grand Canal in the fog and quiet.
Having lived in northern Italy for ten years, I'd love to see what you do with Lombardy!

STONKS!

This is very lovely! Well done! A different subject matter!

Agree that it's a breathtaking painting - Wow!!!

Hi Julian

Your painting made me feel as if I was there and feeling the mist of the morning.

This work is beautiful. So atmospheric. Love it!

I love this.....
I have visited there a couple of times and you just captured the mystery. Thank you.

So nice! I love mists and fog. What a gift to travel and paint, too!! God bless, C-Marie

Lovely atmospheric painting.

Dear Julian,this is divine,sky and canal a silk velvet Fortuny stole. Calls for another espresso!A pretty little bridge please?

Yes indeed,no need here for long speeches and detailed analysis. But I just want to announce:"long live the pure poetry! And "long life our artist".

This is just beautiful, Julian! I am a sucker for misty scenes, and you did a marvellous job.

I love that slash of bright blue - a perfect touch amidst all the misty greys. Another color wouldn't have been as effective, I'm sure.

What struck me about this painting was its peace. I think that it is one of your best, Julian, as was the previous "Reflections on a Pond" that has, now that I think about it, a double meaning. I am glad that you and Ruth and Louis are having such a splendid vacation. I hope that you might do a print of this one.
