Picturing a Venetian canal scene, Doyle has beautifully captured the bright morning light, hitting the left side of the water and tops of the faintly outlined architecture in the distance. Doyle's distinctively minute brushstrokes and impressionistic style gives an atmospheric and picturesque view of Venice. Well presented in a washline mount and simple wood frame. Signed, dated and inscribed with partial legibility on the reverse. On watercolour paper.
There is some surface dirt, scuffing and discolouration to the page and mount. WIth some minor marks to the edges of the frame.
