Saint Petersburg

Saint Petersburg

Oil on canvas board

This month the virtual paintout traveled to Russia and the beautiful city of Saint Petersburg.  I really enjoyed scooting around there with Google maps.  The city has so many fabulous buildings and is a bustling metropolis.  Finally settled here on the Palace Embankment.  I'm not sure what building this is as, of course, most identifying words are in Cyrillic, so if you recognise this building let me know.

Nancy, this is gorgeous! Out of the shade through the arch into brilliant bright sun - ingenious composition. And I especially like the reflected light around the figure.

Great work.

Great work on the architecture & lines. Good perspective - love the added figure to the composition. Nice job!
