Impression of an Amsterdam sunset – 19-12-14
Walking through cities I was wondering what the essence of a sunset in city would be. It is easy to tell from a landscape. The sun always is visible, through treelines or at full display. When in Amsterdam or any other city it struck me all of a sudden the setting sun can be present for a very short time in a window screen, lighting up the complete street in orange hues. Backlighted buildings often show purples and blues in return as a complementary counterbalance through the stimulation of the cones in your eyes. That was where this pastel drawing was all about.
