The Contraption at Number Two, Watercolor By Jenny Armitage

The Contraption at Number Two (12 x 19" watercolor) $400

Walking around The Jordan neighborhood in Amsterdam, we collected interesting variations on the bicycle.  The bicycle-wheelbarrow combination was common.  We saw it used to transport children, tools, and goods.

Haarlem Kirk, original painting of The Netherlands by Jenny Armitage

Haarlem Kirk (16 x 23 watercolor) $700


We spent our last day in the Neatherlands in Haarlem.  Haarlem is just just under a half hour by train from Amsterdam, but feels like it’s miles away because where Amsterdam is large and lively, Haarlem is small and quiet.

The young women in the foreground were adding more chalk to a square already covered in graffiti. None of it was pictorial and all of it obviously washes off with each night’s rain.

European Cafe, Watercolor Painting by Jenny Armitage

Snapshot Cafe (watercolor 14 x 23) $600

 

Despite the lack of canals and only a single bicycle, this is Amsterdam on a summer evening. But it could be anyone of a number of European street scenes.

The title is a bit of a pun.  I painted the picture from a series of snapshots, and girls in the foreground are sharing a snapshot.  I hope the atmospheric nature of the painting has little to do with snapshots.
