This drawing is similar in view to the night time views I posted yesterday, but I drew this in daylight. I went to draw the acqua alta in Piazza San Marco again this morning because a high tide of 120 cm was predicted for 9,30 am. I left the house wearing normal knee-high boots, but when I arrived at the entrance to the piazza under the clocktower, I could go no further. The water was quite deep and my jeans were about to get wet. So I returned home, put on thigh-high waders, and came back again. I only had about 20 minutes to draw, because I had to meet some friends at 10,30. But the scene is not anything as wonderful as it is at night.
I may return in an hour, because there is another high tide at 23,30 and I want to experiment with an idea of how to draw the lights reflected in the water. The tide may not be high enough tonight to really justify the trip, though.
