"Reflected Light" 12" x 16" oil/linen

I can't get enough of Canyon De Chelly.
going to have to force myself to paint
something else for a while. I don't
know what's more compelling...the
immediate depth of field you get
because of the overlapping canyons,
the terrific range of color and values or
how much light gets bounced back up into
a canyon wall. Its plain to see what
caught my eye on this one.

This is a larger version of the plein air
piece I did on location. Gotta say I am
pretty pleased with myself.
