I should really know better.... but Leslie's 30/30 painting challenges are always so much fun. She offers another one in January. That should be a slower month around here.
Our Virtual Paint Out group traveled to Amsterdam this month. We were limited to the area within the A10 highway that encircles the city. It was a lucky coincidence that this month's destination coincided with the recent PBS TV Masterpiece Theater mini series, "The Miniaturist", a dark story of Amsterdam in the 1600's.
A little info -
Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, is a flat, low-lying city, connected by canals to the North Sea. Areas of the city lie below sea level and some areas are built on land that has been reclaimed from the sea. It covers approximately 85 sq miles and has a population of about 822,000.
The inner city is divided by a network of canals into some 90 “islands” connected by approximately 1,300 bridges and viaducts. It has a temperate climate with moderately warm summers. The cooler months of October through March can be cloudy and damp.
