Sargent is positioned himself just east of the Piazzetta  at San Marco looking west. The domed building across the canal is the Santa Maria della Salute. The Libreria  is straight ahead beyond the steps and bridge; and the front facade of the Palazzo Ducale is on the far right. 

Further west along the Riva degli Schiavoni he paints in oil.
