Venice 10th May

A lovely warm sunny day today, spent in Campo San Margherita & Campo San Barnaba.

Campo San Margherita is a favourite of ours, a meeting place for students' it's always lively, a great spot to people watch!

Lots of interesting shapes to paint too!

This Watercolour sketch looks towards the campanile of the church of San Pantalon through the cafe umbrellas.

Campo San Barnaba is famous for its vegetable barge, always to be seen moored against the Fondamenta Geradini

The fascia of the church of San Barnaba was used as the library in the Indiana Jones film, "The Last Crusade" & the little shop attached to the church was the one featured in "Summertime" staring Catherine Hepburn. She also fell in the canal in front of this church!!
