Amsterdam at Night 8×10 Gouache Painting
From a trip to Amsterdam last summer, I painted this night view of the Sloten Windmill (Molen van Sloten) along a canal in Amsterdam. It’s surrounded by modern apartment buildings, but here it is, a reminder of Amsterdam’s past.
This is painted with acryla gouache on 8×10 illustration board and lightly varnished with a UV-resistant matte acrylic varnish. This board is about 1/4 inch thick and can be framed like any other painting on panel, in a standard-size floater frame such as these from Ampersand. The varnish gives it basic protection against moisture and light, so it does not need to be behind glass. However, it’s always best to avoid bright, direct exposure to sunlight for any type of artwork.
Paintings are signed on the back in pencil or pen. Some of my paintings will have minor scuffs, blemishes, or marks around the edges. This won’t be visible when the painting is framed, and is just part of the art-making process.
