For the past couple of days, I have been working on my sinking St. Mark’s Square painting. I took Denise‘s advice and decided to leave the water as it is for now. Instead, I began working on the buildings which will surround my beaded St. Mark’s Basilica. Working from an enlarged photo on my iphone, I painted in some of the structures using gray acrylics. I still have a bit more to do on this section, but for now, I think it’s finally starting to look like something! What do you think? 😮
