Amsterdam bike painting

Red Bike District

Size: 9 x 12 inches

oil on canvas panel


Amsterdam bicycle painting. A red bike leans on the railing in the foreground, putting the viewer on a bridge over a canal at night.  Lights from buildings shine from the darkness on both sides of the canal and reflect off of the water.  I took this reference photo while on vacation in Amsterdam…little did I realize at the time I took this photo that I was about to head into the red light district! This is a small study that I painted in preparation for a large painting (already sold).
