soft pastel on pastel board
30 x 40 cm
made on location, Friday 28 Dec 2007
Today I present to you a typical winter scene of a canal in Amsterdam. Finding myself with a group of artists who asked me to join them, we decided to set up at this location. Looking south on the Prinsengracht were it meets with the Leidsegracht. It was a dull grey overcast day, so a bit of imagination with the colors brings some life into this otherwise boring situation. This work is made with soft pastel I then carried on to make an oil painting which will be my next posting.
