Step by Step Competition

Unusual Twilight, Venice, Landscape
Step by Step Competition, Nov.2023-Feb.2024

A very unusual view for Venice, isn’t it? In one artwork we combine many complex elements: the reflection of light in water, the water itself and, of course, twilight. This is a real challenge! But, as usual, we will look for simple techniques to solve all these complex problems. Some tricks will definitely surprise you...

I am grateful to everyone who took part in the competition. 

My congratulations to all participants, finalists, and, of course, the winners!
