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).
