Remember the post I made earlier about Venetian art? I showed some of my photos that were photoshopped to make them look like watercolor paintings. Well, I found a real artist who has been doing real paintings of Venice and beautiful paintings at that! Here is a sample of one of the Venice series from Cao Yong's collection, he is a painter born in China far from the site/sights of water. Reason why when he first viewed the ocean, he was enthralled and inspired by it. Water (fountains, or flowing), gardens and buildings in different cities are the recurrent themes of his paintings.
