Paintings of Venice – Campo di SS Giovanni e Paolo

This very grand view has been painted by Canaletto, who took some liberties with the truth, as have I.

But artistic license is a part of interpretation, and I love this square as it is one of Venice’s ‘stage sets’ and all the buildings are beautiful. I wanted to capture the sense of the square being ‘larger than life’ in the very clear light that occurs in the middle of the day.
