The Gothic Inn, Birmingham UK.

Grabbed this quick sketch while out painting on the canals in Birmingham yesterday. 'The Gothic Inn' is a fantastic polychromic Victorian building, built around 1880. No longer a (M&B) pub and the building is a little run-down, very sad...bottom level is now and 'adult' shop!

 

Thinking of returning to do a more finished painting. If anybody has any info on the history of this building, I'd be really interested.

 

Sketch is Watercolour and Gouache on Tinted paper.
