morning gondola

Arches CP 300 gsm, 9" x 12".

everyone has a gondola picture in them. the problem is getting it out.

we passed this gondolier on his way to work as we rode the vaporetto to the biennale park at the west end of venice. the italian pavilion had some wonderful paintings, including polke and richter. we then rode the vaporetto up the grand canal and walked to the ca' rezzonico.

the gondola is sepia, blackened with phthalo green (side) and phthalo blue (top). the sky is cerulean over gold ochre. the water is sepia + phthalo green and blue.
