Really enjoyed your narration. You have the perfect voice and accent for it that does not call excessive attention to itself.


Also glad you made the distinction between Canaletto and Bellotto, the later as being the better painter who produced thanks in part to the camera obscura much more accurate and realistic paintings.

Yeah, I read that there was a lot of confusion between the two since Bellotto would sign his paintings "Canaletto" for the sake of name recognition. Anyway, I'm really glad that you like the video! Especially the narration part since that's what I worry the most about
