impressionistic urban graphite pencil drawing

Amsterdam – Rijksmuseum – 27-04-19 (sold)

I went to visit the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum with my parents to see the exhibition ‘Alle Rembrandts’: All Rembrandt sketches and etchings, well most of them anyway. It was crowdy but my will was good and outside I saw the (in)famous ‘bike tunnel’ where unaware foreign pedestrians often get a kick in the leg by a native bike. Agitated by Rembrandt’s works (breathtaking and annoying) I decided to challenge him – clairobscur and backlight wise. I think I might stand a chance winning this battle because I am still alive and he is not, unless I am his reincarnation and then this daring attempt makes no sense at all.
