This painting shows the Canal Grande in Venice. It is based on my visit there two years ago. I was totally amazed with Venice. This painting is done in oil on heavy Arches watercolor board and then mounted on masonite panel. Two coats of varnish seal the painting.

Getting to Know Robert

Robert Holewinski paints realistic places with his own spin, and also throws in some fictional characters like Shrek. He currently lives in Florida and finds inspiration in the work of artists like Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse and Paul Cézanne. In his work, and that of others, he enjoys being able to see each brush stroke. Fun fact: he used to work for Disney.
