Birdspotting

Geen categorie 8 August 2016

This first photo is  sketch from a few weeks ago. The second photo was taken yesterday at Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

The Threatened Swan by Jan Asselijn I spotted first as a small image when going through a pile of random art books.  After reading a bit, I made a quick sketch of it in my art journal and put this library book  back on the bookshelf. Yesterday I stumbled right in it at Rijksmuseum.

My first reaction was getting my art journal out. Not only did my sketch matches the painting, also my notes refered to this painting.

who is spotting who?
