Purple delivery boat

This is the kind of boat used for deliveries here in Venice. It comes in two or three sizes, all kind of colors, but the shape is always the same ! 

This purple and pink one is parked in the jewish Ghetto, in the shade between two buildings. The sun is bathing the background, cancelling part of the wall reflection. There, the water appears in a refreshing yellowish green. In the shade of the foreground, the surface of the water becomes a mirror, revealing the sunlit upper part of the red facade. 

Suprisingly, this painting contains almost all the colors of the rainbow…
