A Painterly Tour of a Venice Palazzo

If you’re on Instagram, chances are good that you saw the explosion of the Waterlogue app the past week which converts photos into digital watercolors. As you can see by this video I posted, I went a little crazy with it in Venice (mostly while I was up with jet lag). As much as I love watercolors though, I love oil paintings more so when I discovered the Glaze app which transforms photos into paintings, I really went bonkers. I used it on some of the beautiful interior shots I took in Venice so here’s something a little different from my usual design notes.

These are all from photos I took at the Aman Hotel which I blogged about here. Being as obsessed with hotels as I am, the whole experience felt like a dream. To think that the entire palazzo was once a private residence boggles the mind. I think I can definitively state it is the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in. I’m still sort of in a daze.

I used to have big plans of drawing and painting on my trips, packing art supplies everywhere I went. But I stopped doing that because I found I never had enough time so this is a nice option. Not that anything can ever replace an artist’s hand, of course! I hope you enjoyed this painterly tour!
