Back to landscapes! I've always enjoyed the red rock areas of New Mexico, especially up in Abiquiu (say: AB-i-cue) in what has come to be thought of as Georgia O'Keeffe country. The contrast of the sweet blues and greens of the bushes against the dull reds and sandy golds really makes for a nice palette of colors.
This was painted on my current favorite, black Pastelmat. It's not a strict rendering of an exact place, more an interpretation of the area.
