Study Abroad: Creative Rendition

The assignment is to make a creative rendition of an image from our trip.

When we were in Glen Coe, the landscape was often shades of gray and brown, but it also seemed to exude magic. Here’s my attempt to capture that with watercolor.

I started out trying to paint the image as I saw it, and then gave myself permission to totally ruin it by attempting to overlay what I felt. I am not sure whether I like it, or if it looks like my old Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper, but hopefully it conveys my meaning.
