This one turned into what David calls 'a jigsaw puzzle' - narrow canal, reflections, just what you would expect and all that. I must admit I found it hard to breathe something different into it. Later I added the washing (that I had seen in the Via Garibaldi area) but it still looks rather twee to me:
|By the Scuola San Rocco - morning|
|San Giorgio Maggiore from the Zatterre|
|Late Afternoon - San Marco Piazza|
The forecast for Tuesday was rain and a moderate aqua alta. We walked to St Mark's hoping to get one in before the crowds and the water appeared. In the event we had both to contend with. Paul and I pitched straight away in the corner uner the clock tower, using the arcade as shelter from the drizzle.
We had done one by the time the water started creeping out of the holes in the Piazza and Paul had almost finished another when Karl joined us and we all bashed on regardless of the water creeping around our ankles.
This is my first one and I might post the other one if I can 'tidy' it a bit:
|Rain In The Piazetta 12x10|
Paul pitched in the corner of the San Giacomo di Rialto square looking out towards the Grand Canal along an arcade. Showing my customary lack of initiative i pitched behind him and painted the same scene but not nearly so quickly or well:
