Amsterdam: Boats, Canals, Bridges, Bikes

In Amsterdam, you’re never far away from a boat, canal, bridge or bike. Which means a sketch subject is always right at hand.

And when you’re hot and tired and Amsterdam has a record heatwave, you want to sit down by a canal and atleast pretend it makes you feel cooler to look at the water. boat

And where there’s a canal, there’s a bridge and where there’s a bridge there’s a boat. And bicycles.

Bicycles are everywhere!

Racing past Rembrandt house.
Or parked on the bridge

    Great sketches! They are so inspiring. I would wilt in 95 degree temps. Sitting in view of water would not be helpful to me at all. Despite the extreme heat, you are able to concentrate and creat some amazing sketches. Thanks for sharing. I pray a cool breeze refreshes you soon.
