Traditional Art – Honors

This is my translation of Kathie Nichols wonderful photo for SoJie12’s Workshop

I had lot’s of fun doing this, see the WIPS. I felt drawn to paint this rock photo because of the beautiful colors and the many forms within it. In my attempt, I have tried to ‘draw them out’ for all to see.
