A quiet view from near the Grande Canal in Venice overlooking the Rio Novo canal. "When I visited Venice in early summer, I loved to go out at dusk for long walks. It seemed to me that dusk lasts longer in that part of the world. I never felt that effect before!" says Onelio. Lovely detail in the reflections on the water. Deep blues, dark green and yellow accents work together throughout the composition.

Getting to Know Onelio

Onelio Marrero paints city scenes of everyday life. In an impressionistic style he captures the romanticism of New York City, the picturesque fountains in Central Park and the wet city streets after a rainy afternoon. His use of warm tones creates a sense of nostalgia and the feeling that you have visited or seen this particular scene before. Onelio will often paint from direct observation, or he will work from a combination of photographs and combine numerous sources into one piece. In this way his work combines reality with fantasy, creating a new story with each painting. His work captures an appreciation for beauty in all of its greatest forms; nature, art, and people.
