This watercolor painting of one of Venice's iconic water taxis shows the energy behind their thrilling rides. Emerging from a shadowed canal, the glowing wooden boat cuts the water before it, sending waves slapping against the tall buildings. A delicate bridge marks the transition between the shadowed ancient buildings and the glorious sunlit water.
Imagine the romance of the couple sitting together watching the beautiful ancient city stream past. What a wonderful start to a honeymoon or romantic getaway.
Whether you've been to Venice with your loved one or not, you can imagine the romance of this Venetian adventure in this watercolor painting. The salt spray, the shadowed buildings and the archway of the bridge frame the couple. The gleaming varnish of the wooden boat takes you back almost a century, to when movie stars were whisked from dock to dock by these lovely boats.
Bring a little bit of Venetian romance into your life with this watercolor painting. Who knows? You might be inspired to take a water taxi next time you're in Venice.

This original watercolor painting is on Twinrocker handmade watercolor paper, made in the USA by old world paper making techniques.
Gorgeous rough true deckle edges allow you to frame it floating on a mat or encased in one. Paintings will be shipped inside mats for stability, except on request.
I highly recommend floating the deckle edged paper for full visual impact.
