Ken Howard: A Vision of Venice in Watercolour by Ken Howard
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the second book in a new series from the Royal Academy which reveals well-known artists at work. The artists offer insights into their approaches to painting, their opinions, inspirations, philosophies and views on art, with valuable tips for both amateurs and other professionals. Working in a variety of mediums, the books show the artists painting in their studios and also in some of their favourite painting locations around the world. Venice, with its stunning architecture, earth colours and atmospheric light, has had a great effect on Ken Howard's work for over 30 years. Here he paints 'contre jour', with the intense light reflecting off water, rooftops or piazzas, building his watercolours with wash upon wash of transparent layers. His subjects include St Mark's Square, the Salute, Campo S. Angelo and the famed fish market.
