Kandern Watercolor

Ok, I did the watercolor. I'm ok with this, but I think really need some lessons.

Now, here is a little history...the painting below was done by the famous artist August Macke (1887-1914). Macke lived in Kandern for a short while and painted some of the scenes that he found here. You can tell from my little painting that this town has not changed much since Macke lived here and painted the same scene that I just did. Kandern honors Macke several ways: the high school here is named after him, there is a street named "August Macke", and now there is a walking tour of Kandern that features his work around the village.
