  Painting the Church on Spilled Blood
by Canadienne

The areas around tourist sights always seem to attract artists ~ a mix of works in progress and finished creations for display/sale.

The gentleman in this photo was positioned on one of the bridges on the Kanal Griboedova, working on a painting of the Church on Spilled Blood. There was a group of children (it seemed to grow by the minute) gathered around him, and he involved them in each step of his work ~ asking for colour choices, having them take measurements with him. . .it was a fantastic scene.
