9x9 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100.
I just drove and ended up going many beautiful places. First, I realized that while the red rocks are stunning, it is the river which "floats my gondola" (as my brother Peter would say.) So I chased rivers. This is the Chama near Ghost Ranch. I love the way I could look from above and see a grand view. Just look at that bend will you!!!!
Here I concentrated first one a value/temperature underpainting and then using color to create the grand space.
