Venice by Night by Helen Beaver


The weekend was amazing, beautiful weather and lots of people out and about, enjoying the cafes and the little markets on the forshore. I want to show you this beautiful collection of watercolours by our Brisbane artist, Helen Beaver. Helen's paintings are very atmospheric, which can only be captured in a painting. How many times have you taken a photo of something, be it a landscape, portrait, a building etc to find it lacks "atmosphere"and you wondered why you took the photo in the first place! paintings can capture it. Beautiful, romantic Venice - Helen travels to Europe quite often and from her travels she is able to bring us the wonderful compositions captured in her paintings.
