Now for something a bit different. I have another notebook that I draw in when we go out boating. Even at the slow pace of rowing, the scene constantly changes. I have to draw really fast. It is smooth on the inner canals (if no motor boat passes), but the water can be quite agitated on the Grand Canal. Here are some drawings made on recent trips.












Here, Geesepalace tied the boat to pali in front of Consul Joseph Smith's house (18th century, patron of Canaletto). I had been eyeing this location as a place to draw: great view of the Rialto bridge, Fondaco dei Tedeschi, Palazzo dei Camerlenghi.

Amy, I love the drawings done from the boat. You achieve something free and graceful by these means. Please post more of these. Nancy Van Ness
