These two paintings were done on Lido which is a barrier island between the Venetian canals and the Ariatic Sea. It is different there, more beachy and newer buildings. It has its own atmosphere.
This one was sketched riding the vaporetto from the bustle of San Marco to the beach at Lido. Usually it is very crowded...standing room only. One day I was lucky enough to get a seat and have some room to sketch. Ciao!
