"The Venetian" is an unusual painting by Katy Kianush.
Katy has used great detail to create an enchanting atmosphere. The romance, mystery and splendour of Venice are shown in a symbolic way through this stylized and haunting portrait.
The use of acrylic relief paints, real fresh water pearls, lace, sequins and copper sheeting, gives this painting a new and unique dimension.
