I just returned from Venice and am always amazed at how artisans accomplish their task of painting in such a challenging environment….
All by foot; of course, as there are no cars in Venice!
There is always the issue of getting future jobs….
This guy papered his neighborhood well!
And don’t even get into weather! This guy is working high above the ground on the Grande Canal…can we say “humid”?
Navigation of the city is an artform in itself…at least there are water buses to help schlep heavy materials to the job site.
But these logistical nightmares have been tackled for centuries in Venice to create the beauty you see when there.
Being a “blogger”(artstheanswer) and an artist, I am constantly needing sources for art related topics or precise pictures to accompany my articles or present an idea to a client. Through endless hit and miss searches on line, I have collected many e-files for future blog posts and upcoming projects. Artisphere will make this easier for you through this column and help you to amass an amazing collection of blogs and other sources for technical information and photo files!
