Got into Amsterdam yesterday, but too late to want to do anything. But this morning I got up with the sun (8ish) and walked to the Rijks Museum. I was there soon after opening. I took the lift to the second level and I made straight for the Vermeer. I had them to myself for a full 5 minutes. Worth the entry fee. Of course I saw the Rembrandts. And after making the rounds, the crowd began to grow and it became harder and harder to see well. So I waited for a bench to open and drew the crowd.
It’s been gray and cold, so I went back to my room and painted the scene out of my window.
