About this artwork

Late afternoon sunlight lights trees and houses along a canal in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Ink and watercolour painting by Dai Wynn on 300 gsm medium texture Arches french cotton paper. 21 cm high by 29.5 cm wide (8.25 inches by 11.75 inches) approximately - A4 standard size. The unframed original is available for sale at $350 on www.daiwynn.com. Amsterdam’s central area, defined by a spider’s web of narrow canals lined by tall leaning buildings, is a fascinating hub of activity. Always alive with people, eating, drinking, walking and playing, the old city is a goldmine of artistic opportunities, particularly on the quays in the early evening. The challenge for me in late April 2015 was to capture the last rays of the setting sun as they lit the new leaves on tall trees, bathed west-facing buildings with golden light, and reflected off windows onto selected spots on the opposite darkened quay. The ink and watercolour painting “Amsterdam in Spring” also becomes a study of a small segment of Amsterdam’s relatively low skyline. Note how many church towers, spires and domes feature in this work.
