Becalmed – Inktense in a Watercolour Moleskine

Another experiment but having difficulty scanning the “powerful” Inktense. Wondering what to attempt next I had thoughts about an exhibition currently taking place in Edinburgh:

A few years ago I visited the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, where the “Night Watch by Rembrandt” is on display. I was delighted to see one on my favourites also in this gallery. This is “Cannon Shot by Willem van de Velde the Younger”:

I have adored this painting for many years and was amazed to see how large it actually is. The Dutch were great maritime artists and this small effort is a result of that memory.
