Burano Wash Day

Burano, Italy is such a charming place with the brightly painted building, canals and laundry hanging throughout the island.  I don't know why hanging laundry is so appealing to me when it's in another country.  I certainly don't find my laundry room charming, especially when it has laundry hanging in it.

Today is day 20 in the painting challenge.  Even though it's called "30 paintings in 30 days" January has 31 days so does that mean that I need to do 31 paintings?  That is what I'm planning to do because I set out to paint a painting each day for the month of January so with that in mind, I have 11 more paintings to do.

I put down my palette knife for this one but I think I would have liked the painting better if I had used the knife.  I like the texture I get with it better than with the brush.  I'll probably do some more paintings of Burano this week because the island really appeals to my love of bright colors.

  1. Love the colors, Nancy! Not sure if those are shutters or curtains but I am so happy the homeowner (or the artistic license) chose green.

  2. Thank you Sherry. They are shutters and they were this beautiful green in the photo (my favorite color). I guess I should have given a little more detail in that area….

  3. It seems that most everything looks better with "vacation eyes" You have captured the quaintness nd feel of Italy in this shot. Yep, I bet the knife would have made great stucco walls.

    1. Yes, stucco would have been fun with the knife.
