With only a few strokes you have captured that essence of majesty and beauty in this facade - how I would love to see Venice! Have a wonderful time!

Jane, I love the facade of the Ca'D'Oro. I have several photos of it and hope to paint it one day. I really like your sketch!

Again, I love how loose and "quick" this is. It takes such skill and trust for this kind of work. Beautiful.

Dear Jane,
I love your loose style based on solid drawing skills. From you, I'm learning lots about architecture. Keep up wonderful work!
Kind regards,
Sadami
