This view has been my companion when I first arrived to live in Venice. I've been lucky enough to see it from my dormer window. I had to be on a chair to see it... So, I painted this view standing on a chair yes :) I did dance, sing, paint and admire the view on this chair...
When I arrived in Venice, it was February, winter, cold nights, not much going on in the outside world at night, but this view my god !
It is actually from the southern part of Venice, Zattere. From there, you can see La Giudecca, just in front of it. You need a boat or the vaporetto to cross the canal.
If you go to Venice, I would suggest you go to see the sunset on this exact same place but then, after having eaten, you come back and see the view at night...
It is magical.
