Lenk im Simmental

For my honors tutorial project I am considering the Thomas Cole painting In the Simmenthal from the Spencer Museum of Art, which happens to depict the general location of my first host uncle's house in Switzerland. I have actually been to the area so the painting was particularly interesting to me for that reason. Below is a sketch I did of it so I would have a nice black-and-white version to compare with this photo I took there:

It's such a beautiful area. I wish I could go back right now and go skiing, but unfortunately I still have to focus on school for another few weeks. Also, plane tickets to Europe are super expensive.
