"Entrance to the Grand Canal, Venice" by Thomas Moran I love the light on the water and the colors used in this painting.

Moonrise, La Giudecca, Venice, watercolor by Joseph Mallord William Turner, 1829. It is difficult to imagine a more beautiful image than this simple watercolor. In it you can see the color poetry that lead, eventually, to Impressionism, and the haystacks of Monet.
