Admiration

Just look at what this artist has produced as he stood on the sidewalk at the edge of the River Arno. Talent? Just a little bit.

The next time you hear from me, I’ll be in the Northern hemisphere, wearing a red coat.

  1. And I was going to say you still would not have reached the end of that sketch. But red coat in Venice? Do you recall a film called ‘Don’t Look Now’?

    We’re envious of you, off to Venice in the winter! We’ve been there at this time of year several times, and love it! As long as you have the right jumpers and topcoat, and don’t mislay those wellies… Good job Bert’s not in town then, he’s not a fan of Red coats, they mess his photos up!
    Enjoy it, say “hello” to the place from us – we’ll be back, but it’ll be next year. And don’t forget to take LOTS of pictures, to make us nostalgic – and yes, very envious, too.

    • It was lovely to step out into crisp air, and to be able to see my breath. It was super lovely to find the vaporetto not jammed with sweating tourists!

      Venice says hello back, and hopes to see you soon. 🙂

  13. Fantastic drawing! If I had a choice of talent and way of life, I would travel the world with nothing but a pencil and a large note pad. Oh – and a red coat!

  14. Why a redcoat Yvonne? Are you off to Butlins?

    Liked by 1 person

    • Now I have to find the connection between Butlins (I have a vague idea what that is/was) and red coats. It’s good to hear from you.

      Oh, the red coat: I want everyone to wear bright colours in winter, so I set an example.

  17. You’re a better woman than I! I couldn’t even contemplate making such a trip, never mind dragging a suitcase. What kind of winter weather does Venice have?

    • They had a huge acqua alta this morning, stivali might be on my shopping list.

      Liked by 1 person

      • Higher than the 90 cm that was forecast? That wouldn’t even set off the siren. And the highest prediction for the next few days is 90 cm. My Castello apartment doesn’t get the gate installed till 120cm and you know it’s right on a canal.
        So when you say “huge”….it means…?
        Funny, no chatter on TA about it or even asking. Which is a little strange. Maybe they banned acqua alta questions.
        So you needed a new pair of cute stivali didn’t you?
        I have an android app on my Samsung tablet (free) called….you guessed it “Acqua Alta” it’s in Italian but that won’t bother you and you can get both the print forecast and the graph that we are so used to looking at as well as a couple of webcams(black and white only)
