This is a sketch of Amsterdam, on the Rokin, near the starting point of the canal cruises "Rondvaart Kooij". For those not too familiar with Amsterdam, the alley behind the bridge leads towards the red light district. I guess I have your attention now....
But to reassure you, I visited Amsterdam for the reopened museum of modern art: "stedelijk museum".
It was quite nice weather, fresh but not too cold. So it was no ordeal to stand in the weak and watery sun at the canal's edge to draw and paint this.
And another nice surprise: I discovered the "art of Urban Sketching" book on the bookshelves of one the bookstores in the center of town.
