Southwest Bound!

'Canyon Country' 8x10 pastel
I was trying out the set of pastels I put together to bring on my upcoming trip to New Mexico. I want to be sure I have the right colors! This is a scene from just outside of Moab, Utah across from the Red Cliff Lodge. I actually took the reference photo while on a horseback ride. This is the same area that many westerns were filmed and it was awesome to be be able to ride through this wonderful scenery!

Your color choices fit in very well. Makes me homesick for the high desert.
