Today’s castle – Burg Nanstein

I set out to draw Nanstein Castle in Landstuhl, Germany today. It seems like all I paint these days are churches and castles. Don’t ask me why. According to what I read, most of the castle residents were less than reputible folks and the “kights in shining armour” were their enforcers.

But luck was with me today… I got a set in the shade for the first drawing; it was a very sunny day. The second view came from my seat at the little cafe in front of the castle, where I was eating lunch. It was quite a good lunch, too. They served traditional German food.
