Amsterdam has more than one hundred kilometers of canals, about 90 islands and 1.500 bridges. No wonder itis also called Northern Venice. Withthe amount of its bridges and the length of its canals it can be compared not only with Venice, but with other European water cities as well. Amsterdam has a unique shape thatlooks like a horseshoe or a crescent. As the city grew and developed new canals were created. It was done in order to regulate thedrainage system and not to make the city look beautiful. Along the most famous canals of Amsterdam you can see the richest and the most magnificent palaces of the city.
You can spend hours walking along busy and noisy narrow streets and beautiful squares of Amsterdam, enjoying:
1. unique facades of buildings;
2. very delicious food and beverages as well as dozens kinds of cheese in local small cafes and restaurants;
3. berthing barges with flourishing gardens on the roof;
4. ancient churches and lots of towers;
However, you can take a boat and enjoy all its beauty exploring all of the canals. Amsterdam is especially beautiful at night with millions of city lights from lanterns and signs of hundreds of shops, museums, cafes and restaurants.
Leonid Afremov being a very romantic person decided to paint this fantastic city at night. In order not to miss even one tiny detail, he usually takes a photograph and then paints while looking at the picture.
In this painting we see one of the canals at night as well as:
· A beautiful stream of bright light on the right looks like headlights;
· Using his special palette knife technique Leonid Afremov made the sky look amazing. We can see millions of brightly shining with different colors stars;
· All of the lights around are reflected in the calm water of the canal as if it were a big mirror.
