Through the window on a journey – Canal
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Dimensions: 116.5cm X 91.0cm
Location: Imabari-city Ohmishima Museum of Art
My stay in Amsterdam was as little as a day and a half. I went there on University related business, so it was all well and good, but I only had the early morning and evening to look at the city of Amsterdam, even that was for just a few hours thought my hotel room window. In the evening, the canal view I saw as soon as I got back to my hotel was around sunset, and canal was shining black in the backlit. The next morning I saw the same view, the city was colored in red because of the sunrise. While I was making sketches in a hurry, I had a searing image of boat rowing like a whirligig beetle in back of my head.
