Ideas for St Petersburg at night paintings

A truly magical experience, my first night in St Petersburg after a 30 hour flight!  Anyway…I would like to do two compositions of this image St Petersburg at night, one on canvas and the other in lustre work on porcelain.  The curve of the buildings on the second image makes for a more interesting design.

Remembering some of my first evening in St Petersburg..the buildings are of note to perhaps an allegorical compostion…not sure yet.


I remember bare feet in the square below- but only for a moment…it was cold….those platform shoes killed my feet and I had useless stockings! ;)
