Ca' d'Oro, Venice

watercolor on tea stained Arches paper

I decided to work on a painting following my earlier quick study.  I have had Arches rough paper for some time (which is more textured than cold pressed paper) and didn't think I would enjoy working on it as much as I did.  I also really enjoyed working with my new Kolinsky Sable brushes, which I find are well suited to this type of loose work.  I am debating whether to add the arches to the bottom of the arches shown.  I think I am liking the square composition.

Thanks so much Mick:) I really enjoy painting this facade and am in fact working on another study "as we speak" which is a bit more colorful. We will see how it goes:)

Thanks so much Jane-I think I've decided to leave it square.
