The Wings of the Dove

18. Two Venice watercolors
Over the weekend I watched, The Wings of The Dove on Netflix to get into a Venetian state of mind. Utterly lush...

16. Purple gondola, watercolor, 8" x 11 1/4"

You'll be transported as I was I'm certain...

20. Two-part Venice watercolor, 4" x 13 1/2"

Don't miss Wings if you adore Venice...

17. Purple Moon, watercolor, 6" x 8 3/4"

Did I say I'm having a 3-day Venice watercolor sale thanks to treasures found lurking in my closet..?

These are all different sizes and on deckled edged watercolor paper...

12. Venice Gondola Passenger, watercolor, 7" x 8 1/4"

    WINGS is streaming now in NYC...but they do rotate as I understand it.
    Wings is much more romantic/dreamy/divine than The Tourist.
    MUCH more!!

  9. Love the immediacy of these lush little Gondola water colors, Carol. They capture the essence, like Venetian Haiku poems.

  10. Carol,
    I have loved Wings of the Dove since I first saw it on the big screen many, many years ago. I think there are some of the most beautiful "blues" in that movie, in mosaics, walls and gowns that I have ever seen, eclipsed only by Venice herself. It's a beautiful film and the soundtrack is magnificent and unforgettable. Thanks for reminding me with your beautiful watercolors. I'm glad I own Wings.......

  11. Beautiful watercolours!! I especially like the Blue Dusk.

    Sigh. Now I want to go to Paris AND Venice!!

    (Totally irrelevant comment: I just got "bozoness" as my word verification. Interesting word, eh?!)

  15. The clothes were magnificent..It 's funny.. went 3 yrs ago..it looked the same:) We stayed outside of Venice..would have loved to stay in a palazzo such as Millie's..Just for once..

    Not necessary..but it would have been memorable..

    Sad ending:(
    Hope I am not spoiling it..
    I love the way they caprured Venice at night..and in the rain also..Thank you for recommending it.
