I pass this church near the Rialto almost daily but the entrance is hidden behind the stalls of teeshirt and tablecloth sellers. Today I went to the Rialto market to shop for fruit and vegetables and also with the purpose of coming in here to draw. San Giovanni Elemosinario is a fairly small 16th century church. It has a nice structure though, and many interesting paintings.
One thing I don't remember ever seeing before for sale at the food vendors is blooming artichoke. I guess one would use it in a bowl of water. They have blue flowers.

Your 180º view makes the church look vastly more complex and interesting than it really is, which is one reason I really like the drawing.

I could only enlarge it once, not 2 or 3 times as usual with your images. Did you photograph it at a lower resolution than usual?

My new digital camera takes really big size photo files and I haven't figured out the ideal smaller size setting yet. So for the past few drawings I was saving the image to the computer and then uploading an email-size version. It is much faster to upload. But I will replace this now with a bigger photo.
