Venice study I 22.5.15

Painting this watercolour and ink sketch in the studio this afternoon allowed me to re-visit our magical trip to Venice in July 1999, a visit documented in a precious journal that I kept throughout our Italian travels that year.

Over the next few days I think I’ll continue with the Italian theme that I’ve started as it is reviving such happy memories, and re-visit a few more special places together with their associated journal entries. I hope you’ll come with me.
