Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg

I did this painting (5" x 8") using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush from a photo I took back in 2005 when on a trip to England, France and Germany with my family, my brother and his wife.  A little internet research to ensure the correct spelling showed that many people took nearly an identical photo.  It is/was obviously a beautiful view framed by a small window in one of the upper sections of the château.  I simplified some of the elements in the lower right section of the picture and tried to suggest the thousands of "red colored stones" that make up the castle without it becoming overly busy.
