The first painting is "Brown Door on the Canal" and it was the first really intricate doorway I tried to paint. I like the way it came out.
The second painting, "San Georgio Maggiore Sunrise" was done sitting on a bench at one of the gondola areas by Saint Mark's Square. I started it before it was light. I was also taking photos of the sunrise, so I would paint a little, and then get up and take a few photos, paint a little and then take a few photos. Both of these are 4 x 6.
