Grand Canal - waiting

I don't quite have the courage to call this one finished yet. I've learned that it's best to put aside the painting for a few days when that happens. When I can look at it as a painting, rather than as a painting I am painting, I will be able to tell, probably.

This type of painting is one I particularly like, where the details are suggested but plenty is left to be filled by the imagination of of the viewer.
