A pen and ink drawing

I did this pen and ink drawing back in 2000. This is a store front in the village of Staufen, Germany.

This drawing was done during the time when I slaved over my drawings attempting to get total accuracy of every detail. This included things like individual paving stones, hinges on the doors, and the curves in the handrail. Today I am more relaxed in my drawings and allow myself a bit more creative freedom.

I like most parts of this drawing. The parts I don't like are the items on the inside wall of this pharmacy. I don't know - just looks kinda amateur.

Original size is quite small: 8x4 inches.
Number of pen strokes: 754,032
