This (most likely) is the last of the watercolor sketches from recent travels in Germany. The lemon tree on the terrace of a cafe along the River Oos in Baden Baden made this a natural spot to sketch, as did the sight of two women deep in conversation on the bridge. This is the Reinhard Fieser Brücke, named after a former mayor of the city.
The bridge connects the area of the Kurgarten, or “spa garden” to the fashionable and beautiful cobblestoned streets lined with shops in the old part of the city–bridging old and old, as well as old and new. The same trip took us to explore a rose garden on the nearby hillside, but it was temporarily closed to the public due to an annual rose-judging competition underway. So we’ll have to go back! Next up: more on bridging old and new through frame innovation.
