Sketchcrawl in Venice

The Worldwide Sketchcrawl was this past Saturday, and I decided to participate. I started with my French press coffee maker at the apartment. Then I went to Saint Marks Square and sketched one of the arches.
Next I moved over to have a view of the Dodges Palace and some of the tourists. I left out thousands of them, but it was fun to try and get the poses. I walked over to the Realto Bridge to paint and found a flower stall. Just as I was finishing, they started carting away the flowers. Glad I was not too slow.

Of course I had to do a sketch of the Grand Canal and the gondola, which I probably erased about 50 times. lol
