 Painting the Amsterdam Singel is made by Iwan Wilke.

Making the Singel, a canal street in Amsterdam is beautiful and gives me a great pleasure to make. I can not make different models. 

The color blue is obvious to me. It is the color of the water and the air, the freedom, it is my favorite color. The simplicity and contours of Singel Amsterdam are beautiful. Simple but great to paint.

The canal houses on the Singel in Amsterdam are the numbers 65, 67, 69, 71, 73, 75, 77 and 79. These numbers are located between the Blauwburgwal and the Korte Korsjespoortsteeg in the Singel of Amsterdam.

The canvas is made of softwood and stretched with pure 100% cotton.

The painting has an iron wire at the back to hang it up. This painting with in centimeters the size 80 With by 80 High and 3 Dept could be hung without a hanging wire, but if you have a hanging system then this painting with a hanging wire is much easier to hang neatly.

About the Amsterdam Singel.
The (Amsterdams: het) Singel is an Amsterdam canal that runs from the IJ to Muntplein, where it flows into the Binnen Amstel.

The Singel was dug around 1428 from the IJ to the Boerenwetering. Around 1450 the remaining part followed as far as the Amstel. Until the city expansion of about 1585, the Singel formed the western city boundary. From 1481 the earthen wall was replaced by a stone wall. At the time, the Singel was also called Stedegracht. This Stedegracht nowadays still consists of the current Singel, the Kloveniersburgwal and the Geldersekade.

In the 17th century, the Singel was temporarily named Koningsgracht as a tribute to King Henry IV of France; at the time an important ally of the Republic. Koningsplein reminds us of this.
