Venice Canal near Rialto Bridge by Joe Cartwright

Venice Canal near Rialto Bridge by 

Venice Canal near Rialto Bridge: Watercolor by Joe Cartwright.
Painted on Arches 300gsm Rough paper 16cm x 36cm.

I painted this while I was in Venice on a painting trip last year. Any have only just now gotten around to scanning it.

I found a little corner out of the way of foot traffic and was able to paint this watercolor with little interuption. I quite like the painting as I feel it captures some of the feel of Venice.

Happy painting,
