The Table :
Turner masterfully captures the unique light of Venecia, the picture is extraordinarily light, with bright colors including blue and green cold sky and water, the latter with wonderful reflections that have been elongated and distorted in the case of reflections of boats and buildings. All this contributes to the view of the city this highly idealized, and looks like a fantasy but a real city.
The perspective is perfect, very balanced composition, accurate drawing without being too redial, and details are achieved with few strokes. It is of note that the boat that crosses the box is decorated with a wealth of fabrics, played wonderfully by Turner, with a wide range of colors and textures.
