Description of Venice canal in afternoon shadows

A brick pedestrian bridge spans a small canal in Venice Italy. The afternoon sun casts long shadows of subdued purple and blue across the pale yellow sun washed buildings. The murky green canal water becomes vivid in the reflected light, taking on sapphire blue hues which darken into a blackish purple in the deepest of shadows. A couple men pause and look out over the canal, their blue shirts bright spots of colour against the dark brick red and yellow gold buildings which line the shadowed side of the canal.

The painting is a gallery wrapped canvas, with the 3/4″ sides re-gessoed a clean white. It is wired and ready to hang. No frame is necessary unless desired.
