Rokin, Amsterdam

I was in Amsterdam last sunday, to visit the reopened "stedelijk museum", a museum about modern art.
It was quite nice weather, fresh but not too cold. The snow is more or less gone.
I made this sketch 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.

Another great cityscape, Rene. You have a nice style of outlining background buildings and concentrating on the details that you want to present. And I learn a little more about European cities!

Thanks for that kind remark, it took a while and a lot of experimenting before I had this way of drawing the way I wanted it to.
Have you never been in Europe? You know now how to get to the red light district ;)

good sketch Rene, I have been here a few days ago, but some problems with comments. I see , there are many comments deleted...

I like also your Kasteel Hoensbroek drawing.
Nice.

Thanks Ludek. You are right. I had very big problems with spam, up to 40 casino-and-ukraine-girls comments on some posts. Within Blogger there is a simple way to delete them, but I did that overenthusiastic and deleted some of your nice comments on the go. Couldn't be restored. I am sorry for that. I really appreciated them!
