In addition to painting, I did find a beach on the island of Lido (where the Venice Film Festival is held). Lido is a barrier island for the Venetian Lagoon. The first two painting are of the vendors who on the beach. One was selling kites and the other was selling drinks and snacks. The last painting is of a stand near the public beach. I had to paint those firey colors. The beach on Lido wasn't very scenic. I am used to dunes as you well know, but the Adriatic Sea is so warm! I spent a lot of time in the water.
