Masks of Venice

It's probably not what most artists paint when they visit Venice, but I have found it always interesting to watch people. This group was looking at the kiosks of masks that were being sold.

It is one of my regrets that I didn't buy a mask. I had one all picked out that I found in a little artisan shop but it was the beginning of the day and I thought I'd pick it up on the way back. It never happened.

I painted random bright colours as an under-painting and then filled in the masks and people.

6" x 8" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas - $70. incl shipping
