For the September Virtual Paintout I chose the Herr's mill bridge in the Lancaster, PA paint out , I liked it for its old worn look with water under 2 parts of the bridge ; the creek and water for the old mill . For this painting I used Van Gogh watercolors on 11"x15" 400 series watercolor paper by Strathmore : )
