Ponte de le Oche, Rio San Zandegola

Drawn last evening at dusk, looking south and west from the terrace. I had to lean out slightly to look down the rio. In the Venetian dialect, Ponte de le Oche is the Bridge of the Geese. It goes over the canal of Saint John Beheaded.
I am assembling the elements of the panoramic view. I just have to look down the Rio San Boldo now, and into the neighbors' gardens.

Good group of drawings. I like your anglicization of the rio. It's also good to know that I'm not the only one who occasionally calls it rio manin. (Though technically it may be Rio S Giacomo dall'Orio; at least I've never known whether rio Marin extends beyond rio S Gio: Evan:. Does anyone?)

I love the sense of space in your panoramic drawings. I love the flowers in the foreground and how they give context to the rest of the scene.
