Venice Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams – Day 3, Rialto Market


“Sentimental Journey,” Venice, Italy ©2022 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting on panel
On the third day of our Venice Art Trek, we took a vaporetto tour of the island and got off at the Rialto bridge where we wandered the fruit, vegetable and fish markets. We left the photographers there to shoot while we set up our easels in this quiet spot marking the oldest restaurant in Venice. This bridge had so much character being made completely of wood, decorated in plantings and flanked by red and white poles that we just had to paint it!
