A Plein Air Painting Trip to Venice

Venice, Chioggia, Burano and Murano
Italy

 

   Venice stretches across 117 islands formed by over 170 canals connected by over 400 bridges in the Venetian lagoon along the Adriatic Sea. Buildings are constructed on wooden piles, which become petrified under water in the absence of oxygen and in the constant flow of mineral-rich water.  The city experiences low-level flooding (called acqua alta), regularly following certain tides. An experimental project using inflatable pontoon gates to protect Venice from flooding from the Adriatic Sea is being implemented. Transportation within the city is entirely by water or on foot.  It is Europe's largest urban car-free area. Venice was the birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi.

 

Enjoy this four-minute mini-tour of Venice and the surrounding islands.

The Artist's Road Store
Max the Easel Butler

Max the Easel Butler

Max the Easel Butler is an ultra-light tool that fits most easels, and creates a great platform for your palette. Replaces bulky, rigid shelves and attachments. Mounts in seconds. It can even mount on the side two legs rather than the front to allow more room to be closer to your painting. We like it so much we keep one in every painting kit!  Also in our Store: Check out the tools and other products that we use in our own art and travels. We only offer things for sale in our Store that we enthusiastically believe in.
