I recently spent a few nights in Olso, attending WordCamp Norway.
The day after the conference, a big group of us took the train up the mountain to Frognerseteren, to go sledging.
The “Distant Falcon”, is the same windmill – De Valk – as in my previous Leiden painting.
The reference photo for this painting was taken from the bridge that crosses the Rijnsburgersingel canal.
I’d love to buy a boat one day and cruise the canals of The Netherlands.
For now I’ll make do with looking at the painting!
Happy bidding 🙂
I visited the city of Leiden in the Netherlands in the autumn of 2013, and on arriving, I looked out of my hotel room window, and the first thing I saw was this tall windmill poking out above the trees.
It didn’t look too far, so I went for a walk to take a closer look.
