This encapsulating Venetian cityscape captured in oil on canvas is Martin's personal portrayal of the unperturbed serenity of an early Mediterranean morning. 'Venice is timeless in the early hours' says Martin...'pure, thin, ethereal light shimmers on the water, light as yet unadulterated by the day, unsullied by the passage of time'. As a study of light and of the tranquil, this beautiful painting aptly meets all marks; warmly lulling you into the serene waterways of a breaking Venice day.

Size: 55cm x 40cm (framed and ready to hang)
