Hello to everyone
i bought this from a online auction and there is no signature.I was not going to waste anyones time ,but i would like to know if this watermark is O.W. Paper & Arts Co..I am also thinking that the subject is a European country side and that it could be a preliminary sketch, dose anyone think i am on the right tract.Thank you very much for your time .

Hi Shawnster,
I have come across a number of early 20th century prints and watercolors on paper like yours, the full watermark is O.W.P. & A.C.L. sometimes additionally watermarked 'Made in England'. I think that this is indeed O.W. Paper & Arts Co. Ltd. which was established by the English painter John William North 1842-1924 in 1895.
I can't help with the picture, it looks more continental European rather than English.
Regards,
Mulberrypete

Here is the pic on the back ,i did not look like much .I was more focused on the front and spaced the back .There was cardboard on the back ,which leached on to the paper and there is writing -back and top -,under a small pin hole ,centered top.
