#243 'St Mark's Basilica' 8x10"

A really tricky subject. We got there early morning to paint in the fog, but it was so dense to start with we couldn't see it to paint and then it quickly cleared and no mist left just building!

I kept it a sketchy and loose not getting caught up with detail, the sort of subject you need to learn in an initial painting and then do another.
I enjoyed painting with a couple of other artists that day, gondolas painting to follow tomorrow.

  1. Quite a different sweep of the brush strokes on the lower half of the building compared to the domes. It does give a sense of a 'practice' painting but still lively and interesting.
