Sedona Sunset

I’m still working on the pastels. I really like the immediate results you get from these little sticks of pure color. The colors you lay down stay without changing values or shifting color like paint can do after it dries. Still a lot to learn, though…

This is form a photo I took many years ago in Sedona, AZ. One of the challenges of red rock landscapes is all the warm light that bounces around in the shadows – making them much warmer than you would normally expect.
