A naked woman wearing a carnival mask stands in the water of the Lagoon with a moonlit Venice in the background. This is possible incidentally as most of the Lagoon is only three feet deep although if truth be told, not actually at this spot! I wanted the picture's focus to initially be the moonlit sky and have therefore painted the figure darker to blend in tonally with the rest of the picture. Naomi Wood was again the model, wearing one of my Venetian masks that I brought back from Venice a few years ago. This is another painting that is a contender for showing at this year's Illuxcon. 23 1/2" x 19 1/2" oil on canvas. There is a step-by-step progress through this painting in previous posts on this blog.
