This painting is watercolour on paper and is the eighth in the Venice series.This is the first one with people in it. I was really taken with this group resting in the sun by the Grand Canal.

A lot of detail, but beautifully done Freda. I like the tones, the colours. Although there are many people in it, it shows peace and quiet all over.
Thank you Arie

Thanks so much for your kind remarks, Firstglance
Great colors and reflections. Wonderful piece.

Oh Freda, I am always so impressed by your work and this one certainly holds no exception. I spent about a week on Lido and would regularly cross over to Venice. This would be just how I would remember it and its been more years than I care to mention that I was there. Beautiful work.
Thanks so much, Jim. Yes, we stayed at the Lido too. It was worth staying out of Venice, to get that first glance as one crossed over. Magnificent!
I always love to see the work of a master watercolorist!
thank you so much, Matthew, you are very kind.
