So I decided to try something more complex like this view of Venice, Italy and to do it entirely in ink! Planning on making this into a doodlewash, but wanted to share the sketch first because I was super excited I actually did it. Actually I’m just scared I’ll screw it up in the wash, so it’s a bit of a backup… just in case.
I’ve been to Venice a couple times and the first time was truly magical. I’d never seen anything quite like it. On the second visit, however, I started to notice the smell. But either way, if you haven’t been, it’s definitely a place to add to the bucket list!Recommended1 recommendationPublished in Other Cool Stuff

You literally made me chuckle….This is very pretty.
Hehe… I live to make you chuckle! 😉 And thanks!!
I’ve been to Venice a couple of times, and loved it! You’ve caught the feel of the place – and bravely! for not going in with pencil first!
Thanks Ruth! It’s been a challenge not to grab for my pencil and eraser crutch…thanks for your comment and support!! 🙂
…it is a complex scene and one would have thought you were right there on the very spot itself. Interestingly, I have never been there, yet am doing a painting of it this minute! It is part of a photo arts club/painting gallery project where we are doing paintings which correspond to selected photo images, and I selected Venice. I will post the results. Thank you for your inspiration.
That’s awesome Lance!! Great minds eh? 😉 Can’t wait to see the results!!
It would have been good if you have paint with brush.
I actually did go back and paint this one… it’s here – https://doodlewash.com/the-grand-canal/
