The scintillating light of Venice and its lagoon excites the eye and stimulates the artist. Capturing the sparkling atmosphere, the reflections in the water, and the constant movement of boats and people is a challenge that Morgan can't resist. The city's iconic architecture and the bustle of the Grand Canal, gondolas and vaporettos, as well as the tiny "rios" and the narrow back alleys - all teeming with life - simply scream out to be painted.

Morgan enjoys people and painting portraits affords great opportunities to get to know people better. Portraits of friends or informal portraits are particularly enjoyable to paint. Exploring different lights and interesting poses is an adventure in itself. The well-known portrait painter, the late John Ward CBE RA, said to Morgan when starting to paint Morgan's portrait: "Let battle commence". Capturing likeness and personality is a fighting challenge which leads to most rewarding victories.
