Prinsengracht 969

I painted a new house-number at a bed & breakfast studio on the Prinsengracht, Amsterdam.

The building is a traditional canal house from 1690. It was an honour (and a little bit scary) to paint on something with such a long history.

Besides the house number I also made a little instruction for how to use the doorbell.

The style of the numbers is inspired on a combination of “De Amsterdamse krulletter”, a French model and the previous house number.
