Grebbesluis, Jan de Beijer
Ink and wash, roughly 4 1/2 x 12 (120x30cm). In the Rijksmuseum.
With clear observation, economical delineation and a few simple tones, 18th century draftsmana nd painter Jan de Beijer gives us an evocative semi-panoramic scene. It looks to me like the right side of the drawing may have been cut off, perhaps the scene was even wider.

Nice. I like the details and the strokes with little jitters.
Thanks, Parka. Strokes with the jitters really make the difference in some master drawings, particularly Canaletto: http://linesandcolors.com/2013/10/16/eye-candy-for-today-canaletto-drawing/ Softens the otherwise rigid straight lines. I need to try that.
