Painting Venice at night

Painting Santa Maria Della Salute at night.

I recently spent a few days painting in Venice with fellow plein air painters; David Bachmann, Paul Rafferty and Karl Terry.   This photo was taken on the day I arrived.  I had been up since 3am to drive to Gatwick in the snow and not even darkness was going to stop me painting.

It was an eventful trip with flights home cancelled by the snow in the UK and an unusually high acqua alta of 140cm left more than 55% of Venice flooded.
