WatercolorWall Profile picture Old door in Venice. Watercolor painting with a focus on urban decay.

Venice is a very old medieval city. Many buildings and foundations are slowly rotting away or sinking slowly to the bottom of the Adriatic Sea. And so is this large green door that I sailed past during a gondola ride in one of Venice's many canals. The original image is a photo image I made from the gondola. Photographing from a low perspective gave the old gate a very powerful and grand appearance.
The painting shows the urban decay with ancient elements and rusty color contrasts consisting of earthy and green tones. The visible erosion like the crumbling plaster, bricks, rusty iron and the bright ultramarine water gives the painting the real Venetian atmosphere.
The ancient architecture, the color contrasts and the beautiful details really appealed to me to translate the photo image into a watercolor painting in my studio.
The original painting is painted on 300 gram watercolor paper.

Welcome to WatercolorWall.
The studio of painter and designer Ricardo Bouman. Ricardo is a watercolourist with a passion for travelling and discovering beautiful landscapes, cities and architecture. When it comes to painting, he enjoys painting realism and, since a few years, impressionist and abstract art.

Ricardo has been painting with watercolour for over 25 years, translating his own travel experiences into paintings and illustrations. He does painting in the traditional way, with the whole process being carried out in a handmade manner. From stretching the watercolour paper, sketching the composition to painting with watercolours. The work is then photographed in high resolution, making the painting available in high quality as a Wall Decoration.

Ricardo paints in artistic, illustrative and modern styles using various painting techniques. His subjects often have a connection to nature, an emotion or a location he has visited himself.
