Yellow dunes, plein air seascape in oil by Philine van der Vegte

Mooring posts in the Amstel river

Mooring posts in the Amstel river, Amsterdam ink painting by Philine van der Vegte
Another sunny day near Central Station in Amsterdam. This time in ink and (canal) water. Today's challenge was to keep the lightest part of the painting white, find the darkest darks and everything inbetween. No corrections possible in India ink! And no pre drawing. I like the reflections of the mooring posts.
