Remsml.jpgWe are in Amsterdam and to celebrate having a WIFI Internet connection through the generosity of the management of the hotel that we are staying in, I have overcome my shyness at sketching in public. We found ourselves in a place called Rembrandt Plein where we had a cup of coffee and a slice of wonderful apple pie at a cafe called the Ritz. It has a great view out into the square and the statue of Rembrandt in the park in the middle. I did this rather ordinary pencil sketch of the statue. Rembrandt I certainly am not but at least I have broken the ice. The next time won't be so hard.

Tomorrow we are off on the high speed train bound for Paris. Look out Senelier's - here I come, credit card in hand. I am not sure when I will get another Internet connection.

I love Amsterdam, and have been to the square although when we went it was summer and crowded with tourists. Your sketch looks good, wish I could sketch as well as you. Enjoy Paris and the rest of your tour, Linda (UK) (PurpleInk).
