Venice by Samantha .

Landscape Share


acrylic on canvas

46 x 61 cm

Venice is a beautiful city, full of beautiful gondolas, bustling crowds and life. I visited Venice in 2015 and painted this scene in Nov 2020, 5 years later, in the midst of COVID-19.

Reminiscing about some of my past overseas trips, I came upon one of my photos capturing the sunset over the Venetian lagoon in the distance, with the flying seagulls adding to the life of this quaint city. By using the palette knife I was able to focus less on minor details and more on the overall mix of warm and cool hues in the skies and waters.

I've always loved art as a child, but it was only in 2007, that I took a 3-month oil painting course at NAFA and met Mr Low Kim Chit, and proceeded to take more lessons from him over a year. This started my real love for canvas painting (using acrylic). Fast forward to 2017, almost a decade later - I was finding myself burnt out at work, wondering what I could do in life, and I decided to come back to painting. Since then, I’ve found greater fulfillment in life, firstly through reconnecting with my love for painting from my younger days, and second, I see art now as a means to know myself and discover new ways of thinking. Art challenges me to see if I can do something differently each time I start on a new piece. Besides the challenges, it is also pleasure. I find myself wanting to capture the beauty of a scene, just like photography – to immortalise it. I don’t quite believe that art must always have a message, to me it is simply capturing beauty for beauty’s sake. Now working as a freelance social media marketeer, I make time in between and dabble with acrylic and watercolour. My art style is realistic and I love the interplay of light and shadow, as well as scenes of nature. I believe that by sharing my love for art, I can inspire others with the joy and beauty that art brings. It’s an identity I’d like to grow old with.
