I found a quiet corner off one of the Campos in the Castello region of Venice. The alley ended at the waters edge and I was able to set up my easel and paint in relative peace and quiet. Gosh, the canals are a hive of activity - I could have been in the middle of London.
I enjoyed the challenge and tried to capture the right light and tonal values of the scene. The water was a real challenge, but I got there in the end. I was really pleased with the finished artwork.
