Venice Cafe


The leaves are dropping quickly around here. Recent high winds and rains have already stripped many of the trees. Those leaves remaining are muted and dulled. Only a few weeks of fall this year ... darn!

So I decided to revisit Venice through Bonny's photographs. Here's one of my favorites of her's ...a cafe, canal in the background, and more lovely architecture.

I think this is the first cityscape you've done with people. Amazing what some "life" adds!! And you did them so well--not too defined, but showing some color, some movement. Just excellent, Lin!!

Lovely, Lin!
You truly did capture the people very well - now that's something I would have messed up for sure!
I'm so pleased you are doing these Venice Vignettes, I doubt I would ever get to them.

Beautifully done Lin! The people make the perfect addition.

Hi, Lin. Great drawing. It's cool that we're both taking Cathy's course!!

Linnie, This is fun, I like the people in it! As the weather turns, we will all probably be doing more sketches off of photos.

Terri said...

Lin this is GOOD!!! Wow, it is really really good my friend. You captured those people in such a wonderful way - I really like this drawing very much. You should frame this one.

This is so charming and bright. Just what I needed to see right now.

What a nice scene -- and so like many I've seen in sketch books -- you captured the feeling of the street perfectly.
