Monday, March 18

Here is another one shot painting start to finish of Amsterdam. The church tower in the background is called Westerdok church and it was where Rembrandt was buried. In usual fashion he was placed under the stone floor inside, until the family ran out of money and could no longer pay the church tidings. Then they called upon the loved ones to come and collect what was remaining of the body to make room for somebody who could pay the yearly fee!

That must have been a pleasant day for the Rembrandt family.

I'll touch it up a bit after several day and add a few things here and there. I'm finding these small studies fun to do since they go quick.
