Sketchers and doodlers in the Pfalz and Baden regions of Germany have many subjects from which to choose. If the weather holds out, it may be possible to focus on drawing more sights. But today it was a race against threatening storm clouds, and a few raindrops, to draw this “schloss” built between 1715-1718. Fortunately, the clouds moved off, leaving wonderfully blue skies and bright sunshine, despite ominous weather forecasts this morning anticipating downpours.
Off the well-trodden tourist paths in Germany, there are still a great many surprises to see, especially in some of the oldest towns. Here is one celebrating its 750th anniversary this year! Tomorrow many in the town will turn out for a flea market; we’ll have to see what that looks like in a sketch or two.
