Venice study

Here are a few sketches of scenes from Venice from our trip to Europe this summer.

Rialto bridge in charcoal.  Reference was a photograph I took from one of the piers.

A quick study of one of the Venice canals with a multi-colored pencil.  I found this interesting pencil which contains a multi-colored lead.  It is one pencil with a lead with multiple pigments in it.  Unfortunately, it contains a lot of red and hence the reddish hue to the sketch.
