The Grand Canyon from riverside is natural beauty at its most dramatic! Spectacular colors, sheer cliffs, layers of rock, the sparkle of light on water, the green of desert plants.
I hiked up from our camp at Parashant Canyon, as high as I could easily get carrying paper and painting materials, to the base of the cliff on river right. There I sat through the morning, painting the scene below me, entertained by little birds in the cactus and mesquite.
11 inches by 14.5 inches on Arches 140lb cotton CP paper.
