Wonderful sketches Joan, especially the one of St Peters.

BTW Google Street view covers the whole of Venice including the canals.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Thanks, Doug. I did know that about Google Maps.

I visited Burano while in Venice. They are known for their lace and also for their colorful buildings. When you are there it is like falling into a crayola box.

The wisteria was in bloom in Venice when I was there and I enjoyed seeing the contrast of the soft blooms against the rough facades of the buildings.

It was fun to sketch the Academia Bridge and the view up the canal.

The first sketch is the square where our apartment was located. The gondola was on the canal right beneath our apartment window and we could hear the gondolas that passed that had musician. We really enjoyed the area where we stayed.

Re: Joan's Sketches from 2019

Ahh, to sketch in Venice. What an absolute treat that must have been. I think I would be so conscious of the layers of historical art that I'd probably cramp up fail to do anything. Loving all those little sketches of people, and of course the wonderful array of windows, doors, balconies and roof tiles that are on offer. A particular favorite of mine are the iron braces, so I'm very pleased to see them on show in your sketches.
