Back to Venice – I wish!

Sitting here in the UK in what is now rather dreary weather, too wet for golf and my mind turns to Venice!

We have been lucky enough to have visited Venice on a few occasions and each time there is some magical new sight to see.

So going back through the many photos I have taken there I realised I have never attempted to paint a watercolour of Saint Mark’s Square, “Piazza San Marco”. So yesterday I decided to have go at it.

Once when we were there there was a bit of flooding in the Square which does happen quite often so I have tried to convey that in this watercolour. I thought I had better say that in case you didn’t notice!

I hope you enjoy looking at it and just to set the scene here are two fairly recent paintings of The Rialto Bridge and The Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute as well.

Ah, Venice, oh to be there now sipping a cocktail in Harry’s bar!

Happy travelling
