Bow Willow Wash

This is from a photo I took a couple of weeks ago in one of my favorite desert washes out in Anza Borrego State Park. Many of the better known palm groves have burned in recent fires or been damaged. This canyon still has several small groves scattered along a spectacular canyon. Can't wait to go back!

- This is the initial thumbnail sketch for positioning

- After a quick drawing, I added some transparent washes to establish the values.
