Corner in German Village

I started this watercolor sketch on Thursday afternoon and am just now getting back to it this afternoon.  I did the drawing with brown acrylic ink and a nib pen and finished with watercolor wash.  This painting is 1/4 sheet of watercolor paper - 15" x 11"...is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed Arches paper.  This painting is from a photograph I took late this spring in Columbus.

Granny - they say that when art triggers a feeling or a memory that it has been successful...so thank you for this positive reaction to my painting.
