THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
This beautiful take on a rainy day in Venice can change your entire outlook of the artistic city through Rain in Venice by Ioan Popei. Designed using a dark teal for the sky to help promote the idea of a cloudy, stormy night, this creative piece makes a fine contrast with the deep reds, browns and oranges that shine through on the classical architecture that makes up most of the beautiful city. If you are looking for the perfect representation of life in Venice, Rain in Venice by Ioan Popei is the perfect representation!
Venice in the long, tireless, pouring rain. In this piece, artist Ioan Popei offers us his bold expression of how Venice’s infamous rainy season only adds to the magic of the city. We can still spot the Venetian gondola riding through the canal and the people seemingly unbothered and unaffected at all the constant rain. The bright colors of the buildings, with the city’s familiar neoclassic pinks and yellows dominating, are in perfect synergy with the grey sky, all reflected across the ever-present water surface as it all merges into one endless whole. If you haven’t been to Venice in person, this piece will make you feel like you’re there in early February, just ahead of the Carnival.
