Venice canals

Trying to keep out of the busiest parts of Venice I found so many places where I could capture the quiet, the romantic side of Venice. Bridges and canals wherever one looks.
August in Venice is hot, hot, hot. The main problem with sketching was finding shadow and a place to sit. When the tide was low I would find steps down into the canal where I could sit and draw along the canal.
Or I would find a little bar with an open window out to the world, where I could sit, sip a Spritz and draw the vegetable vendor on his boat.
