  2. Thanks Glory. Next time I go (and I'm sure of that ;) )I'm going to take my pastels and will try paintings as well. This last trip I just wanted to get a much better sense of what was there and how it worked so I could do better paintings as a result. Sketching was much the best way of working for that.

    I did the one of the guitar player - but I might well have another go at that one. You can see it on the Venice gallery on my website here http://www.pastelsandpencils.com/venice.html

    I've got others that I want to work up but which and are still on the 'to do' list.
