Nighttime in St. Mark's Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Nighttime in St. Mark's," Venice ©2019 Niki Gulley
9" x 12" textured oil painting 

Venice is one of the most romantic cities I’ve visited, and at night it is especially dreamy, quieting down from the tourist traffic and filled with sparkle and energy.  In St. Mark’s Square, you can hear the sounds of live music while couples dine al fresco or stroll through the dimly lit open corridors. Gorgeous marble tile floors line the walkways while golden arches frame the iconic views. I wanted to capture that magical feeling and transport you back to fond memories of your Venetian vacation.
