New art: Venezia

23 Jan
The subject is an advertisement poster for Venice that I found in the 2010 calendar I got in Venice in 2009 and kept.

Canson artbook, 10,2 x 15,2 cm (4 x 6 in), 96 g/m2 (65 lb). It took me 3 hours, although it felt much shorter.

The paper is almost too thin for this medium (the paper warped), and a bit too small for this level of detail. I’m using a set of 30 acrylic paint markers from Artistro that come with a fine tip that is 1 millimeter wide. At this scale, one millimeter is pretty thick. I find that thinner lines can be achieved in swift strokes, but that is at the cost of precision (in my case).

My kid liked it, so I framed it and it now hangs on his wall.

I painted this 3 years ago almost day for day. [update: I misread the month next to my signature 😱 It was Jun. not Jan. So “almost”, give or take 6 months! 🤪]
Pentel Brushpen, watercolour (sepia, lamp black, quinacridone rose), 23×30 cm.
It’s after a much cleaner piece by the talented @jungshan from Taiwan whose work I absolutely love!
