Venice 2017 practice #7

Venice, Italy, 15" x 11".

Well I tried not to get the bridge dead centre, and I think it's just off.  Maybe distracted by the left hand boat and figures.  With the narrow canals and bright sunshine, reflected light can light up buildings which otherwise could be quite dark compared to the values on the other side of the canal.  I decided right at the end to have a foreground shadow crossing the whole scene - just a very faint glaze of a greyish wash when everything was dry.

My gosh Tim, your ability to catch the light even in the most difficult situations is really incredible.
