After the first sketchwalk to Westermarkt I walked back to my hotel along Prinsengracht and picked up a sandwich along the way. It was so hot I thought I’d die right there on the cobblestones clutching the paper bag and crushing the sandwich under my body. After a brief rest in the air conditioned hotel room I decided to get an Uber to take me to the Museumplein meeting point. Behind the Rijksmuseum the sun was still beating down and it was so hot I decided to go off on my own. In the relative coolness of the museum’s tunnel I sketched one group of buskers and then the pair that took their place.
