Canyon de Chelly Sketches

Eastward Blues  9x12 Oil - $250 unframed
(Junction Overlook)

As I promised in my recent post on my adventure to Canyon de Chelly National Monument, here are some sketches from that trip.  For a short while, I am making these available at special low prices.  The price is for unframed work and includes shipping to the continental US.  If you are interested in purchasing a piece, please click on the link below the image for a larger image and details.

Also, if you'd like to help me out on these plein air painting expeditions, you have the chance to sponsor an extension to my Scotland trip and receive a painting in exchange.  Please check out my post "Send a Painter to Bonnie Scotland" to learn how.  I am grateful to those who have already contributed to this project and others.  Honestly, I wouldn't be able to make my paintings without the generous support of my collectors.  Thank you, everyone.

For those of you interested in the technical side of painting, my favorite new color from Gamblin is Brown Pink--and there's a lot of it in each of these sketches!  It's an intense, transparent earth red that works well with the desert and canyon landscape.  I found it great for greying down blues and, in a light tint, it is a quick shortcut to depicting sunlit rock.
