    Cadell's painting evolved rapidly in 1910, inspired by a productive sketching trip to Venice which had been funded by a £150 advance from his friend and patron Sir Patrick Ford. Pictures of the city are among the best of his early period, and mark the move away from a rather derivative form of Post Impressionism towards an original style and vision. The brushwork is fluid and expressive, and his delight in the effects of light on water anticipate the attraction Iona would exert on him. The Italian sun also provided a chance to introduce pure colour into his otherwise rather tonal palette, as this sparkling example demonstrates.
