I coughed my way around but the warmer weather helped to keep the chest infection quiet and my obviously diseased state may have saved me from some of those Chinese tourists who just love to get too close.
I did 20 panels in all so I thought I would put up the first 2 days worth on this post and follow with two more posts. I have 'tidied' some of them but (for all you purists out there) I still regard them as 'plein air'. If you had seen me drenched and wind-battered on the Molo on our final day, fighting one-handed to get paint mixed and applied while the other hand kept everything from being blown away, you would understand why. Anyway I am with the famous French painter ( I am still trying to remember who it was - can anyone help?) who said 'nothing counts but the painting'.
Here goes then: Day 1 - 22 November 2012.
San Giorgio from the Straw Bridge 12x8ins
San Marco Facade 12x10ins
The next day we had our only fine day:
Salute, Early Morning 10x8ins
Palazzo Contarini Fazan 10x8ins
Palazzo Barbaro from Campo San Vio 10x12ins
Now we enter the misty period folks!............
