In 2009 I took my husband on a tour of Croatia to celebrate his 75th birthday. At that time, I was still using a "real" camera. (A few years later, I purchased an iPhone - tossed my digital camera, and never looked back!)
I remember taking architecture photos - we were on a walking tour - I took pictures of the architecture of every bit that "fit" my criteria! I'm not exactly sure where we were, but I know I took this photo somewhere in Croatia!
I've wanted to paint this particular scene for quite some time. I tend to not want to buy new supplies but make do with what I have. Thus, a rectangular photo had to be drawn on a square canvas. The challenge begins!

Tomorrow I plan to take brush in hand and have a go - wish me luck!
