The Aquarelle Painter : Photo 101Rehab

It was a sunny morning and as I walked along the Amstel canal in Amsterdam, I saw a young woman focused on painting an aquarelle. Her watercolor pallet was lying on the rear of a bike, making that space her studio.

She graciously let me take her photos and I promised to send them to her.

I am posting them here as a gallery at the Photo101 Rehab, the event for everyone who loves photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters, or just curious about photography, anyone is welcome), and wants to join a community of like-minded people, who are also fun to connect with.

Check here to learn how it works.

Here is what ‘The Clinic Photo Rehab is:

This blog hosted ‘The Photo101 Rehab Clinic’ from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by Photobloggers Andy Townend, Mara Eastern, Cardinal Guzman, DesleyJane, Justine, Amy, Teresa, Albert, Terri, Giving Thought, Ellen, Nalinki, Mariangeles, DwayCrafts, Lucy, Terri, Bampa’s Views, PeaceCrafting, Dreaming of Leaving and Project Easier.

As former patients informed me that the withdrawal symptoms remained active, and new patients recognized the same symptoms, The Clinic – Photo Rehab  reopened its doors.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Passionately Curious, come and join us: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

How to join:

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7 until the healing process ends.

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join; and not only former Photo 101 bloggers. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

Thanks for joining and enjoy it.

  1. I think that “I-hate-you” feeling is beginning to return, dangit. All you have to do is walk out your door (OK, maybe a ferry across…if you live near the red bridge) and you get shots like this. The pastels on the bike are nice. I know it’s “cool” to make galleries like this, and yeah, they look cool, but I like solo photos, so I can really see them. So I clicked on yours, and there was a slide show thingy. That’s when I could see the artist painting behind the rail and line of bikes. I like that one (and the kid and old man in the background…very cool shot. And I like Amsterdam faces, she has a very Amsterdam face: high cheek bones, dimples, jaw and chin.


    1. Ok I accept that you hate me but at least you like the photos.
      It’s even easier than what you imagined. You’re going to hate me even more. No ferry crossing because I live in the eastern harbor area of the city.
      By the way the painter was from Eastern Europe.

  2. Interesting pics! It’s intriguing how she’s holding the small canvas in her hands and paints while standing. Instead of sitting in front of a canvas. Very lovely shots and artist!


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
