Rembrandt van Rijn...what made him so special?
You can get to know him better soon during great exhibition in Rijksmuseum, 2019 is the Year of Rembrandt (as hi died exactly 350 years ago).
.
On the pic is my version of Rembrand House, the place where he lived and worked in Amsterdam. Now there is a beautiful museum.
.
This was one of my first big facade, so very proud of it. 😊
I chose this building because it's sooo Amsterdam. 😍
Hope you like it too.😁
